Key business contacts from across the region attended Sandy Park’s second Network at Sandy Park event on Thursday 21st September, with over 100 people attending the event at Exeter’s award-winning conference centre.


Guest speaker Christine Ourmières-Widener, CEO of Flybe, gave fantastic insights into her career and the bright future and plans for the airline, which is based at Exeter International Airport. She also highlighted the company’s emphasis of providing investment to the South West through the growth of Flybe’s routes across the UK and Europe, plus a focus on connecting with the wider community through initiatives such as the recently renewed sponsorship of the Exeter Chiefs.


Guests were also joined by Exeter Chiefs’ fly-half Gareth Steenson, who entertained guests with stories from his career and his part in the story of the Chiefs’ rise to becoming Aviva Premiership Champions earlier this year.
