Businesses in the region are being invited to book their tickets for one of the first landmark in-person events in the post-Covid calendar.
The York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce dinner takes place on Thursday 23rd September, and is always attended by key business and civic leaders from North Yorkshire and beyond.
Laurence Beardmore, President of York and North Yorkshire Chamber, said:
“I’m really looking forward to the Chamber’s first dinner in two years, not least my first dinner as President – which is both a privilege and honour. The dinner is a wonderful opportunity to meet with some of our region’s key businesses and industry leaders, and a chance for them, too, to bring along clients and help get the region back open for business. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic the business climate for most is still difficult and uncertain but the recovery is beginning and so I feel the time is right for our regions businesses to come together and be part of the Chamber community on the night..
“This year we are delighted to welcome the Reverend Richard Coles as our guest speaker. Reverend Richard Coles is Britain’s most famous vicar – who alongside his positions as Chaplain is also a musician, journalist and radio presenter. His career has spanned four decades from being half of the 1980’s band the Communards to more recent adventures on Have I Got News For You, Celebrity Masterchef & Strictly contestant. Richard presents a weekly Saturday morning show on Radio 4.”
