The Business Day being held at Bridlington Spa on Friday 8 June has sold out in record time. Placing business networking at the heart of a day of discovery and insight for more than 670 business leaders from across the region hearing from speakers Sir Bob Geldof, social entrepreneur Josh Littlejohn MBE, Yorkshire cricketing legend Geoffrey Boycott OBE, and the day will be hosted throughout by journalist and broadcaster Naga Munchetty.
As well as keynote speakers, there will be 14 breakout sessions for delegates to choose from, including one of the world's leading business executives, René Carayol MBE and for the first time, a Leaders' debate between East Riding of Yorkshire Council Leader, Cllr Stephen Parnaby OBE and Hull City Council Leader, Cllr Stephen Brady OBE, chaired by former MP The Rt. Hon. Alan Johnson.
Now in its second year, main sponsors of The Business Day are East Riding of Yorkshire Council, For Entrepreneurs Only, Hull City Council, Humber LEP, J.R. Rix & Sons Ltd, KCOM, Sewell Group, Spencer Group, University of Hull and Welcome to Yorkshire, along with a number of associate sponsors.
Cllr Stephen Parnaby OBE, Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council said "The Business Day is now seen as the finale of Humber Biz Week.
The format was well received last year and the feedback has been very supportive, which probably explains why the event has sold out in record time. There are some subtle changes, particularly offering larger space and choice for breakout sessions, and delegates will also have the opportunity throughout the day for networking and to visit our sponsors' stands."
