John Forkin and Chrissie Rowell

Fusion Derby, a new business networking group in the city, launched recently at the Genting Casino.

Forty five delegates were in attendance from across Derbyshire and the rest of the Midlands, representing businesses like NatWest, 3aaa, Jurys Inn, Nelsons Solicitors, Purpose Media and the Arkwright Society.

Speaker John Forkin gave an after lunch speech, praising Derby’s engineering, tech and transport sectors and revealing plans to improve areas of the city centre and encourage new names into the high street and Riverlights development.

Organiser Chrissie Rowell of Black Hare Marketing, said: “We’re thrilled with how well Fusion has been received. John’s speech was perfect to launch our first event ­ things are really looking up for Derby and our aim is to celebrate the success stories in the region and create opportunities for more businesses to work together and share this success.”
