Who has the biggest contacts book in the business? Your local newspaper.

The Star is at the epicentre of what goes on in the Sheffield City Region with an ever-growing audience across digital and print mediums. Now we’re shouting about it by launching our own boardroom networking events.

Your business is our business, we told a host of people in our extensive contacts lists; come and talk shop with us.

Our first event, staged on Monday lunchtime at our offices in York Street, saw The Star’s editor, James Mitchinson, Business Editor David Walsh, Business Monthly Editor Jo Davison and representatives from our commercial team assisting networking and potential growth between 30 local companies, entrepreneurs and organisations - from Brendan Moffett of Marketing Sheffield, award-winning Pyronix founder Julie Kenny and Rob Holmes, Deputy General Manager of BT Business, to representatives from leading city firms Bell and Buxton, BHP, Grant Thornton and Hart Shaw.

Our boardroom networking events will run every other month. To be at the next event, email David.Walsh@thestar.co.uk or Jo.Davison@thestar.co.uk
