A local entrepreneur will serve up some tasty business tips at a communication event next week.

Kirsty Henshaw, from Preston, will be the keynote speaker at the ‘Get Your Business Superfast’ event on Wednesday, February 5 at Burnley Football Club’s Turf Moor stadium.

The ice-cream and healthy desserts innovator, who went to Penthwortham Girls High School, will explain how in 2010 she became one of the youngest entrepreneurs to secure a £65,000 investment from ‘Dragons’ Peter Jones and Duncan Bannatyne.

And how, after an extremely challenging period, she went on to expand her Longridge-based food business, which now supplies several of the country’s leading supermarkets with her own brand of healthy ready-meals.

County Councillor, Jennifer Mein, leader of Lancashire County Council, said: “Superfast Lancashire will bring great benefits for the county – not just for individuals but for businesses too.

“A key part of the project is ensuring that business people across the county are fully aware of how access to high-speed broadband can help their businesses.”

The free event for small and medium-sized businesses is designed to help make the most of the latest communications, gain business knowledge and a competitive advantage.
