New business breakfast held at TEC campus

A new business breakfast event for concerns in Scarborough is being run by the combined forces of the Institute of Directors and the Business Ambassadors.

Thursday, 5th December 2019, 8:00 am
Keynote speaker Jon Geldart.

The inaugural business breakfast will take place tomorrow (Friday, December 6) at the Scarborough TEC campus on Filey Road.

The ambassadors have run their own breakfast forums for a number of years but this will be the first combined event with the IoD.

Keynote speaker will be Jon Geldart, the new director general, who said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Business Ambassadors who have successfully championed the renaissance of Scarborough as a great place to live and work. Bringing companies together enables their owners to share ideas and strategies for business success.”

Peter Wilkinson, chairman of the ambassadors, said: “We hope our new business breakfast with the IoD will encourage more business leaders to become ambassadors for Scarborough, supporting our role in promoting the area as dynamic, entrepreneurial and a great place to live, work and play.”

The business breakfast starts at 8.30am and runs until 10am and is sponsored by North Yorkshire Law, which is supportive of the TEC and local work experience and employability.

The event will be hosted at Scarborough TEC, the college that created Michelin-star chefs such as Andrew Pern and James Mackenzie, as well as James Martin.

The college has set up a unique Chefs’ Academy at its new base on Filey Road, where the students are guided in every aspect of catering and hospitality under the dedication of Paula Truelove and her team.
