Thank you to all the businesses that attended our first We Are Leeds business networking lunch at the wonderful Weetwood Hall estate proudly sponsored by K2. The sold out event was blessed with great weather as guests enjoyed a complementary drink in the sunshine before heading to their tables with guests. 

The event was hosted by Rugby AM TV hosts Alex Simmons and Jamie Jones-Buchanan and is the first lunch of a quarterly programme aimed at bringing businesses together to share ideas and opportunities.

Business leader Paul Caddick from Caddick Construction and Leeds Rhinos opened the lunch sharing his thoughts on industry, the threats and opportunities of Brexit and his hopes for the Leeds Rhinos club both on and off field after the development of the Headingley Emerald stadium.

Kevin Sinfield then spoke after two courses of top quality food about his career and some of the great memories he shared as captain of the Leeds Rhinos. He went on to talk about commitment and leadership listing the characteristics he believed made a great leader, his thoughts and speech really resonated with the business community.

Everyone left with a commemorative gifts and a huge thank you after collectively raising over £2000 pounds for the Leeds Rhinos Foundation. Thank you once again for your attendance I look forward to seeing you all again.
