Holborn Bars hosts Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club

De Vere Venues Holborn Bars Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club event
De Vere Venues Holborn Bars last week played host to the prestigious Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club, a dedicated networking event designed to enable innovative leaders of growth businesses to meet other like-minded peers and grow their business networks within a relaxed and sociable environment.

The event was sponsored by banking giant Santander’s UK Breakthrough program and Kingston Smith, the leading adviser and accountancy practice for entrepreneurial businesses. Around fifty of the UK’s fast growth leaders gathered in the historic Holborn Bars venue to share ideas and provide inspiration and mutual support. A wide variety of business sectors were represented with guests from the Finance, Film, Health, Events, PR, Fashion, IT, Travel, Food& Drink and Entertainment  industries.  

Following a drinks and canapé reception sponsored by De Vere Venues, entrepreneur Paul Currie, founder of The Lakes Distillery, the first official distillery in the Lake District, took to the floor and delivered an inspirational presentation. Here he charted his business journey thus far, including details of the much anticipated launch of the first ever blend of British whiskies, which go to market next month.  Guests then enjoyed whisky tasting before a Q&A session led by Paul Currie.  

Eilis Noble, General Manager of De Vere Venues Holborn Bars comments; ‘‘We were delighted to host the Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club and showcase De Vere Venues’ unrivalled hospitality to business leaders present and future.’’  

‘’De Vere Venues is dedicated to providing an innovative, forward thinking meetings product, reflective of the business ethos of each of the entrepreneurs who joined us on Tuesday evening. The De Vere Venues product offers companies of all shapes and sizes dedicated training, meeting and conferencing facilities at each stage of their business journey, and we look forward to welcoming guests back in the future.’’  

Teresa Quinlan, Managing Director of Love PR, who run the Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club events added; ‘’We would like to thank De Vere Venues for hosting the latest Fast Growth Entrepreneurs Club. The grand surroundings of Holborn Bars, combined with the building’s rich corporate history provided an inspiring location for our guests. We hope to work with the De Vere Venues team again in the future.’’  

Holborn Bars, built over 150 years ago, is the former home of The Prudential Insurance Company. The venue displays quirky original features such as a safe dating back to the 1800s and central grand sweeping staircase, which in a past life was reserved for the sole use of the Chief Executive of the iconic financial services company.   

With a central London location just seconds away from Chancery Bar Tube station and the West End’s ‘bustling theatre land,’ Holborn Bars offers delegates 40 flexible meeting and function rooms for conferences, training and events. With free Wi-Fi throughout, as well as the latest AV equipment, Holborn Bars is also home to the Steam, Bake & Grill restaurant.
