LORD Alan Sugar was the guest of honour at a business event held this week.
Destination Growth took place in the AirSpace hangar at Duxford airfield on Tuesday, and featured speeches from Apprentice star Lord Sugar and Michelle Mone, founder of the Ultimo lingerie brand.
The event was organised by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA), and the focus of the day's events was on beating the recession.
Richard Ellis, chairman of EEDA, said: "Destination Growth has once again proved to be an outstanding success. It was fantastic to see so many of this region's business leaders, each with such gritty ambition to survive and thrive during the recession, come together - especially as time has never been such a precious commodity in business."
