Beers and Business LIVE with Jacob Laursen

Updated: May 6

Our first ever live event direct from The Smile Factory!

We have a really exciting announcement to make! Next Tuesday (10th August) we are hosting our first ever Beers and Business LIVE with a very special guest, former Derby County and Denmark international footballer Jacob Laursen.

Our CEO Adam and Jacob Laursen

Jacob made over 150 appearances for Derby County and served the club between 1996-2000. This will be a great opportunity to hear some fascinating stories from Jacob and hear what it was like to be a player under the legendary manager Jim Smith. Colleague Box CEO will also be quizzing Jacob on what it takes to get to the top of your profession and what it takes to be the best version of yourself.

The event will take place at The Smile Factory (aka Colleague Box HQ) on Alfreton Road, Derby with the evening commencing at 6.30pm with networking opportunity and the main event starting at 7pm.

Here's what's included:

· A complimentary beer or soft drink to enjoy on the evening

· A delicious bar snack

· A free ticket for a guest to join you

· A chance to ask any questions to Jacob

· The opportunity to buy a ‘pic n mix’ box of beers to take home

This event is free and exclusively for our Beers and Business Club members. If you are not yet signed up you can do so here.

Membership is £16 a month and includes 50% off code to use on ANY box in our online shop (premium collection included!) and a Beers & Business Subscription Club box delivered direct to your door each month filled with 3 x craft beers, 3 x snacks, exclusive offers and merch. (Subscription can be cancelled anytime.)

To keep it interesting the beers will vary in style, colour and taste with a mix of readily available beers and those that are a bit more niche. In previous months we’ve tried honeycomb IPA, sours, and milkshake IPA!

Beer without snacks is only half the fun so we'll supply 3 different beer snacks each month ... crisps, jerky, sweets, nuts and spicy nibbles to name a few.

This in person event will not replace the usual monthly box – this is an added bonus! You will still also receive an August Beer and Business subscription box and invite to the zoom event.

Keep your eyes peeled each month as we'll include special offers for Colleague Box or from our suppliers/guests along with exclusive merch including pin badges and beer mats.

Each month we'll include an exclusive invite to our Business Talk Beer Club where Colleague Box’s CEO Adam Bamford will be drinking beer (shock) with a new special guest each month as they discuss beers, business and anything else ... no off limit topics. We'll be keeping it interactive with the ability to ask questions and rate the beers throughout.

Zoom to be held on the last Thursday of each month at 8pm.

The club is for those of us lucky enough to be aged 18 or over.

Subscription can be cancelled at anytime.

Free car parking is available.
