News: Connect Gazelles in Rotherham


Connect Gazelles, a unique group that provides ambitious entrepreneurs with top level mentoring from Yorkshire's leading entrepreneurs, is hosting another event in Rotherham later this month.

"Gazelles" are private sector businesses who are growing rapidly - they can be from any sector.

Launched by Connect Yorkshire, a not-for-profit company that helps growth businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber get the debt/equity funding and expertise they need, Connect Gazelles is a members operation and include masterclasses, mentoring, networking opportunities and discussion boards.

As the level of business support provided by the public sector is dramatically reduced, the new group offers members access to expertise, access to other local entrepreneurs and a free strategic review of their current business situation.

The next event will hear from Julie Kenny CBE DL, chairman of successful Rotherham business, Pyronix Ltd.

The security equipment manufacturer celebrated their 25th anniversary last year and the Hellaby based business has grown to become a world leader in the manufacture and development of security equipment, with an emphasis on evolving their product range to meet ever changing consumer demands.

Julie will share her vision for building a winning team and a winning business and discuss aspects of attracting the best talent, motivation and effective management.

Julie is also the chair of the British Security Industry Association and commissioner with the UK Commission of Employment and Skills. She was the last Chair of Yorkshire Forward and was appointed by Government as one of three commissioners to oversee improvements of governance at Doncaster Council. She will soon take over as High Sheriff of South Yorkshire.

The event takes place at the AMP Technology Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham on January 31.

In November, award-winning Rotherham manufacturer, AESSEAL hosted the first Connect Gazelles event in the area.
