Five high-profile business leaders will be the special guests during a new online event to be hosted by Tees Business – with guests able to submit their questions to the panel.
Tees Business is launching a new regular free online event, Tees Business LIVE, which will see a panel of leading local business figures discuss topical talking points in a live discussion with our host and virtual delegates, who will have the opportunity to ask questions.
The first Tees Business LIVE event, sponsored by Jacksons Law Firm, will be held on Zoom on Tuesday January 26 (12-1.30pm).
Included on the inaugural Tees Business LIVE panel will be the newly-crowned 2020 Tees Businesswoman of the Year – either Carla Keegans of Ethical Housing Company, Jo Davies of HR Alchemy or Jane Armitage from Jacksons Law.
She will be joined by Professor Jane Turner OBE from Teesside University, Dean Benson from Visualsoft, Frans Calje from PD Ports and Dominic Lusardi, the inaugural winner of the Tees Tech Ambassador award last year.
The event will be hosted by Bob Cuffe MBE, non-executive director of Resolution Media and Publishing, the team behind Tees Business.
Tees Business executive editor Dave Allan said: “Our quarterly networking events, which coincided with the publication of each Tees Business, were always well attended and very popular.
“Until we can return to those ‘normal’ events, we wanted to get businesses together for a series of virtual events, which will cover various themes and topics for different sectors.
“Free to attend for our delegates, we will be covering all important topics, gathering an insight into what our local business leaders think and offering advice and guidance to the watching attendees.
“Tees Business LIVE will also be interactive, with our host putting questions submitted from delegates to our panel.
“We’re looking forward to the first Tees Business LIVE, and we thank Jacksons Law Firm for their support in sponsoring this inaugural event.”
