Business growth specialist John Connolly has joined the line-up for the IoD’s fourth Humber Business Leaders’ Lunch.
The co-founder and managing director of C4Di (The Centre for Digital Innovation) will talk about the #ScaleUpHull initiative at The Deep on November 14.
#ScaleUpHull was launched in October at Hull Minster by C4Di in partnership with Barclays Eagle Labs.
It aims to help fledgling businesses, high-growth scale-ups and traditional organisations through mentoring, business support and advice on investment and finance.
Mr Connolly, pictured, has extensive experience of setting up technology businesses and taking them from concept through to profitability. He sits on the boards of tech start-ups and charities.
Pat Coyle, chairman of the IoD in East Yorkshire, said: “I was hugely enthused by the launch of the partnership between C4Di and Barclays Eagle Labs and I’m delighted that John will be joining us to speak about #ScaleUpHull in more detail.
“Everyone is welcome for what promises to be an excellent networking event with high-quality speakers.”
