Location : The Corinthian Club, Glasgow

The Communications Breakfast is a Creating Sparks initiative designed to provide a networking forum to help our clients share knowledge, learn from each other and do business together. Each month we have a guest speaker who presents on a topical communication related issue. The events are held in The Corinthian Club Glasgow on the first Thursday of every month. We look forward to welcoming businesses that we can network with and achieve mutual business growth.

"The Communications Breakfast has become an essential part of our Networking activities. The variety of high calibre speakers every month attracts a wide audience of business professionals, and it is precisely that group of people with whom we are seeking to engage." - David Flint (Partner, MacRoberts LLP)
