Breakfast Exchange

Please Note: This is a business breakfast event & is not for the general public.

This month we will be shining the spotlight on two exciting, high growth businesses based in Middlesbrough: Lexonik and Presca.

This FREE networking event provides businesses with an opportunity to meet up on a less formal basis, chat, share, learn and do business. The Breakfast Exchange’s cosmopolitan approach remains along with its popular ‘Business in the Spotlight’ feature.

Come along and hear Lexonik’s Founder Katy Parkinson and Presca’s Co-Founder and Commercial Director Pete Lillie talk about their business journey, the lessons they have learnt along the way and how they successfully operate internationally. The Dept of International Trade along with Tracey Watson, a specialist business consultant from The Funding Forum who is able to provide EU exit support, will also be on hand to offer business advice and support.

Date: Thursday 12th March 2020

Time: 7:30am – 9:30am
