The Bay’s Business Breakfast

17th March 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Organised by The Bay and inTheBay, in partnership with Lancashire and Cumbria based commercial lawyers Baines Wilson LLP, the event will take place on March 17.

The event follows on from the successful debut Bay business breakfast held in September 2016, which saw over 100 people attending.

Just weeks before Theresa May intends to invoke Article 50 at the European Council, MP for Lancaster and Fleetwood, Cat Smith, will be talking about the ramifications of the historic moment and what she feels the impact of leaving the EU will have on local businesses.

About the event, Ms Smith, said: “I’m really excited to be taking part in this breakfast event with The Bay Radio, inTheBay and the local business community working collaboratively for the prosperity of our area.”

Businesses will also have the opportunity to ask questions of both speakers and a panel of speakers. Likely topics include Lancaster’s flood defences, the constituency boundary debate, making the most of the Bay Gateway and more.

Lancaster City Council Chief Executive, Susan Parsonage, will also speak at the event. Susan will be giving a review of her first 9 months in post, the opportunities and challenges we have as a business community and the council’s overall vision for the District.

This free event will take place at Morecambe Football Club from 8am until 10am with ample time for networking opportunities for attendees.

Chairing the debate once more will be Alistair Eagles, the chief executive of Seatruck.

Panelists will be Vicky Lofthouse, chief executive of Lancaster District Chamber of Commerce, Professor Angus Laing, dean of Lancaster University Management School and Tom Scaife, employment partner at Baines Wilson Lawyers for Business.

Joining them will be Mark Whiteman, managing director of Reid Hamilton Insurance Brokers, Matt Jackson, managing director of Lancaster Brewery and John Shaw, managing director of First Subsea.
