New appointment to drive evolution of region’s business conferences

Published 14th Jan 2014 by Events

We are working in partnership with Hillrich on the business conferences in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, with Chrissie Slater joining the Chamber to take the popular events forward.

Chrissie has worked on the Yorkshire Business Conferences previously and brings with her a wealth of sales and project management experience.

Executive Director of the Chamber, Andrew Choi said “This is an exciting opportunity for the Chamber, with the help and expertise from Chrissie and founder, Danny Matharu, to build on the great success of the annual business conferences in Mid Yorkshire. The events, re-branded ‘MY Conferences’ provide a fantastic platform for local companies to get in front of decision-makers and do businesses together. They offer outstanding connections right on our doorstep, which is what the Chamber is all about.”

Chrissie added, “I am excited to begin the new venture with the Chamber and Hillrich to bring some fresh, new ideas. Mid Yorkshire businesses have a lot to offer and I’m keen to make sure that this is showcased throughout the conferences and business weeks.”

As in previous years, there will be a series of business-themed activities in the same week as the conferences and local businesses will be at the heart of it all through hosting their own inspirational best-practice events. We are calling on local businesses to think about holding a seminar or workshop on a professional topic.

The first of the 2014 business weeks will be Wakefield 2nd - 6th June at the Cedar Court, Wakefield with the conference held Wednesday 4th June. Kirklees will follow in October and Calderdale’s will take place in November. 

To reserve a stand, enquire about sponsorship or for more information on running your own event during the business weeks, contact Chrissie.
