Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce is hosting the last in a series of summer breakfast meetings for its members next week.

Paul Bonett, of Bonetts Estate Agents, will be the guest speaker. He wants more small to medium-sized companies to forge links with schools and colleges.

He will also be promoting use of the car-sharing scheme, City Car Club, and talking about the importance of "being yourself" and the work-life balance.

He said: "We began to take young people on for work experience and then got involved with a mentoring programme to give opportunities for disaffected young people in the world of work."

It will take place at 7.45am on Friday, September 23, at Sussex County Cricket Club, Eaton Road, Hove, and includes breakfast and refreshments. The cost is £12.50.
