The countdown is on to the Anglia Business Exhibition, which takes place at Trinity Park on Wednesday, May 15.

The event, organised by Ipswich and Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA), kicks off with a special networking breakfast, at which an audience of 100 businesses will hear from keynote speaker Andrew Cohen-Wray, one of the UK's leading mental performance coaches.

Andrew West, employment partner at Gotelee Solicitors, which is sponsoring the breakfast for the first time this year, said his firm was delighted to be part of the 2019 event.
