Making your workspace more productive

Zib Gotto and Mark Pugh from architects Saunders Boston, were instrumental in shaping the Future Business Centre, the space that we enjoy so much at the Drive Cambridge meetings.

In May they are going to share the tips they have used here and elsewhere, to help you create a more productive work space for your business.

Early Bird Booking, just £10, ends 14th April!

Birthday BBQ

We’re celebrating the first year of Drive Cambridge with a really special event.

Knibbs Meat Safe has finely honed it’s product, enhancing an already respected position in the local community, championing their own products and supporting other local food producers too. Today Knibbs is recognised for fantastic meat and other local produce but the ethos behind the business remains unchanged… “Good food need not cost the Earth”.

It wouldn’t be Drive without some quality business insight and sharing. Not only is this an opportunity to hear from a successful, local business, but it’s a unique chance to taste the produce straight from the BBQ!

Tickets include a welcome drink, freshly BBQ’d meats or veggie options with local salads and breads.

This unique event is limited to 30 people, so book now and we look forward to celebrating with you!
