FEO at The Business Day 2023

Date: 13 June 2023

Author: Jan Brumby

The Business Day at Bridlington Spa took place on Friday 9th June 2023 with a capacity attendance of 720 business leaders from across the region who enjoyed a day of networking, discovery and insight.

The day was hosted throughout by Gyles Brandreth. with keynote speakers, Clare Balding CBE, Rachel Fellows, Chair of the Collaborative CEO at Bettys & Taylors Group and Keith Harris from Treble Group

This year, FEO continued as a sponsor of the event and wanted to inspire and entertain delegates with some real life stories of resilience and positivity from members who may not have been featured in FEO presentations in previous years.

It was also our aim to fly the flag for the private sector and reinforce what FEO is all about, its origins, its uniqueness and its member volunteers. And of course, to shout about our Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service!

Our breakout session themes created an entrepreneurial buzz in the Café area, complete with our Seaside themed branding, which became FEO HQ for the day.
