First Friday – A Bondholder and Cognitiv Collaboration….
Friday 03rd February, 2017
08.45am - 11.30am
Nostell Priory, Doncaster Road, Wakefield WF4 1QE
Christine Bellamy, Head of Business Operations at the BBC, will put the spotlight on the BBC supply chain and up and coming tech when she visits the district next month, kick-starting Wakefield Bondholders first Friday networking events for 2017.
The BBC's move to Salford, which is reported to have boosted the UK economy by £277m in just one year, demonstrates the huge, positive impact the organisation could have by working closer with the North.
Experts say the BBC’s move has removed barriers to collaboration for small, independent digital agencies and has improved the output of firms working with the corporation, along with a ‘greater flow of creative industry talent to the area’.
Chaired by Adrian Spawforth, Wakefield Bondholders Chair, the event will also feature an update from Kelly Smith, and the usual excellent networking and breakfast of hot sandwiches, pastries and fruit. Opening at 8.45am for networking with a 9.30am start for presentations.
Bondholder first Friday’s continue to be a must attend event for local businesses with ambition and a passion for Wakefield and the wider district.
