Frome Business Breakfast

The Frome Business Breakfast is a monthly event that presents bite sized business talks for the local community. Each month, the sessions feature a local speaker with expertise in the chosen topic. Participants are invited to ask their own questions, join the discussion, or simply sit back and absorb the information.

Here’s a look at what Frome Business Breakfast is all about.

On the 3rd of July, Frome Council invited people from local schools and businesses to help promote apprenticeships among young people and to discuss how local business can support schools within Frome with offering apprenticeships and how the different schools are engaging young people with work skills, employability and how to apply for apprenticeships as well as to help and cater to students with different or special needs and difficulties.
