Take a, the new drinks evening delivered by the Yorkshire Mafia and sponsored by CityFibre, will bring together specialists from the digital, tech and IT business community on Tuesday 24 September at East 59 in Leeds from 6pm – 11pm.
Building on its experience of delivering successful strategic events that attract hundreds of people to nurture relationships that develop over time, the YM has added this drinks evening to its year-round schedule.
Encouraging those working in the tech sector to get out from behind their devices and into the same room to meet, hold meaningful conversations and learn from one another, Take a is expected to be one of the most popular events in the calendar.
Providing the platform for IT business leaders, creative digital entrepreneurs and those with a shared investment in the technological advancements of the region to share a drink in a relaxed setting, registrations for the drinks evening are already ahead of expectations.
The evening is sponsored by CityFibre, who earlier this year began works in Leeds to enable the city to be one of the first areas in the UK to benefit from a substantial full fibre roll-out, in partnership with Vodafone. Accelerating the digital capabilities of residents and businesses across the city.
Founding Director of the YM, Geoff Shepherd, comments: “We know that our region has a lot to offer when it comes to tech advancements, digital expertise and IT specialism and that is why we launched Take a.
“Getting experts together is essential as businesses of all sizes are confronted with digital transformation. Creating an event where people can have relevant and meaningful conversations about the topics that matter to them most is the difference between ‘networking’ and building a business community.”
Kim Johnston, Leeds City Manager from CityFibre adds: “This event will bring together peers from across the digital and tech sector with a collective mission to ignite conversation and lead the Northern tech community.
“Having this platform to discuss, debate and share is incredibly powerful, and we look forward to meeting with those that come along to impart their thoughts on the industry and the opportunity it presents.”
