YOUNG professionals came together to launch a new business network in Worcester.

The inaugural event for Worcester Connect saw colleagues from Prosser Knowles, Jelf, Fisher German and KPMG to All Bar One in the new Cathedral Square development.

Organiser Anita Hennessey said: “We wanted to bring young professionals together on our doorstep in the new Cathedral Square, it was really well attended and I have had really positive feedback.

"Our next event will be a networking breakfast at Cote in Worcester on September 29, which we hope will be just as successful.”

Worcester Connect has been set up by lawyers at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, which has 450 staff and partners based at offices in the Thames Valley, Cheltenham, the Wye Valley, Hereford, Worcester, and Birmingham, who provide a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients.
