Business people from across the county got up early to meet at Truro High School this week for Cornwall Chamber of Commerce’s July Big Breakfast.
Whilst enjoying fruit smoothies on the lawn and a traditional cooked breakfast served by the school’s caterers, Sodexo, on Cornish slate in the dining room, more than a hundred CCC members had plenty of chance to network before listening to three short presentations on renewable energy investments, Truro High School for Girls and Unlocking Potential’s new Future Skills programme.
For Truro High’s new Headmaster Dr Glenn Moodie the event was a first.
“I only moved down from High Wycombe with my family the day before so I spent the night sleeping on the floor,” said Dr Moodie. “As preparation for my first official engagement as Truro High’s Headmaster it probably wasn’t ideal but having the chance to meet so many of Cornwall’s business leaders in the school was a real privilege. I’m very keen to forge strong, mutually beneficial partnerships with the local business community and the breakfast was a great opportunity to start that ball rolling.”
Kim Conchie, Chief Executive of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, said: “The Big Breakfast at Truro High School was one of our best. The setting was lovely helped by beautiful weather so we could meet outside on the lawn and the food was spectacular. I think the upbeat mood meant a lot of business was discussed and several deals concluded.”
