Host a Made in YORK afternoon event

on Monday, 27 February 2017. Posted in News, Promotions, Events


Host a Made in YORK afternoon event!

This year we agreed to draw up a list of dates where other paid members can host/present our afternoon events.

In terms of co-ordinating, promoting and managing the administration of the events of course I will still do all those things but you would be 100% in charge of the content and meeting format!

Traditionally our afternoon events have had 3 or 4 mini presentations followed by a group discussion. I think the group discussion worked well so perhaps that is something that could be developed more. If still want some presentations should we dispense with the projector and screen to keeps things simpler and more personal?

So far Mark Hind, Debbie Pickering, Jane Fisher, Mark Harris, John Bramwell and Ally Hayes have expressed an interest in hosting. Please get in touch if you would also like to present an event.

Below are dates and links to all our 2017 afternoon events.

If you want to present an event please let me know which event you would like to host asap this week so we can get a schedule drawn up and dates in the diary.

Fancy hosting a Made in YORK event?

on Thursday, 04 August 2016. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

With the holiday season closing soon and the next Made in YORK event getting ever nearer I thought it was a good time to inject an interesting twist on our events.

Due to other commitments earlier in the year a couple of our meetings were hosted by group members and that gives us a great opportunity to tweak things without changing the format, provides an opportunity for others to get themselves across on a more personal basis and allows me to attend as an attendee for a change! In terms of co-ordinating, promoting and managing the administration of the events I will still do all those things.

So if you would like to host some of our events please let me know asap.

Our next event is Friday 2 September and you can book via this link:

See you there.

Stop asking me to spend £500+ to exhibit my business!

on Wednesday, 26 August 2015. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

I get really tired of organisations asking me to spend £500 plus to exhibit my business so decided to do something about it. On Friday 30 October we are holding the inaugural YORBusiness event at the Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel.

You can view the event details here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/free-to-attend-business-fair-and-networking-event-tickets-14039515569

I wanted to give businesses of all sizes the opportunity to exhibit and eradicate the cost barrier. But is doesn’t end there. YORBusiness is also an Open Networking event that is 100% FREE TO ATTEND.

Please note this is not a one-off event. We will be holding 2 more YORBusiness events in April and October 2016 too. With your support we really can make this a flagship business event in York.
