“It’s just over a week until our industry networking event and I’d encourage anyone in the sector to sign up as soon as possible," comments Sean Holt, BFM Managing Director. “Attracting and retaining talent is a real challenge for many businesses in our sector currently, so this is a great opportunity for delegates to come together and explore the vast range of options they have available to them.
