Get your new year in business off to an inspirational start by joining friends and colleagues for a wonderful dinner at our annual January get-together, in the atmospheric Jesmond Dene House.

This year, Nigel Mills is bringing together some of the region’s most prominent entrepreneurs - Sir Peter Vardy, Sir John Hall, Gill Southern and Paul Callaghan - to share their experience and beliefs about what makes a great leader and the future of leadership in the North East.

With two historic devolution deals in place, worth £1.5bn to the area, and the promise of an emerging Northern Powerhouse, 2016 looks set to be a pivotal year in the future of our economic prosperity.

We have a unique opportunity for new political, economic and social ideas to be realised, so there seems no better time to deliberate how business owners can help to lead our region toward a better place for future generations.

Exceptional success comes from exceptional circumstances and to succeed at the highest level you need to have purpose, strong values, a good plan and be able to work as a team.

Guided by Entrepreneurs’ Forum board member and chair of the North East IoD, Graham Robb, the evening will give you a chance to join in with our panel’s conversation, share your thoughts and ask questions, as we explore leadership styles, debate what we want the region to look like in the future and how the business community can help to get us there.

Our Chairman’s Dinner promises to be one of the most popular events on our calendar and always delivers a great evening of business knowledge and experience with an enjoyable social occasion.

A special thank you to our networking and drinks sponsor for the evening, SGP Technology Group.

This event costs £99 (+VAT) and is open to Entrepreneurs' Forum members only.
