The company was set up in 1950 by Stephen’s father in law, David and builds bespoke paddle boats. In January 2018 Dad’s Boats exhibited at The London Boat Show.
Leanne Castle of GENIX said, “We hold ten networking events, at various locations across north Norfolk each year. The informal and friendly sessions are ideal for those who run small and micro businesses. It’s a great way to make new contacts and gain information over coffee and biscuits.
“We’re pleased to have Stephen from Dad’s Boats as April’s speaker, he will share his company’s story and top tips for growing a business.”
In 2016 North Norfolk District Council commissioned GENIX to organise Coffee Means Business in north Norfolk after recognising the need for a regular networking opportunity for businesses which didn’t involve expensive membership fees.
Cllr Nigel Dixon, Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development said: “If you own or run a small business, I would thoroughly recommend attending a Coffee Means Business event. They are a great way to meet new people, share business ideas and gain valuable business support in a relaxed environment.”
Coffee Means Business is held from 9.30am until 11.30am, it costs £5pp payable on arrival and booking isn’t essential. The next event will be held on Tuesday 17 April at Northrepps Cottage Country Hotel, Cromer NR27 0JN. For more details visit the events page
