A BUSINESSWOMAN who has become known for her memorable pitch when appearing on TV’s Dragons’ Den is set to visit Furness College.

The event, organised by Furness College and the Federation of Small Businesses, will feature a presentation from guest speaker Kirsty Henshaw, a producer of healthy food from Preston who delivered the a memorable, emotional and successful pitch on Dragons’ Den.

Delegates will hear how her passion, commitment and gritty determination to succeed helped her to become one of the youngest entrepreneurs to receive investment on the show.

Her business – Kirstys – sells high quality, delicious, nutritious and allergen free alternatives to a range of food products sold under the Freedom branding.

The event has been organised to showcase The Edge – a Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership project offering funded training to businesses and their employees so they can secure the skills they need for business growth.

Eligible businesses and self-employed people must have a base in Cumbria and employ fewer than 250 staff.

The evening will begin at 4.30pm on Tuesday June 17 with a buck’s fizz reception, followed by the guest speaker and a tour of the facilities. Refreshments and the opportunity to network will also be included.

Places are limited for the event. Email Karen Johnson at karen.johnson@furness.ac.uk or call Furness College on 01229 825017 by Friday June 6 to reserve a place.
