Monday 2nd June sees the start of the second Wakefield Business Week with the established and successful Wakefield Business Conference at the centrepiece on Wednesday 4th June at Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield.
With less than a week to go delegate places are rapidly filling up and we are urging business representatives to register their interest to attend to avoid disappointment.
Martyn Dawes, Coffee Nation/Costa Express giant and John Bird, founder of The Big Issue will take to the main stage at the conference to share their journey to business success. The conference also includes a ‘State of the District’ panel chaired by Helen Oldham, Managing Director of Johnston Press Yorkshire. There will also be a session featuring four local businesses presenting ’20 slides in 20 seconds’ of social media.
Throughout the business week from 2nd to 6th June there will be more than 30 seminars hosted by experts across the district. The business week will also incorporate “Meet the Leader” events, presenting a rare opportunity to get behind the scenes of the most prominent organisations in the district; Coca Cola, The National Coal Mining Museum and The Ridings shopping centre to name just a few.
