Breakfast at The Grand
The popular Eastbourne Premier Breakfast Club takes place on Friday May 18. We will have nearly 30 of the towns largest employers attending, including a first time visit from Powerplay Direct.
Gavin Fletcher, tournament director with The Lawn Tennis Association will also be there to update members on the fantastic AEGON international tennis championships, which come to Eastbourne next month.
The club provides an opportunity for Eastbourne Borough Council and our local MP to update business leaders on their work over the last quarter. Council chief executive Rob Cottrill will talk about the fantastic season of summer events and new developments, while Stephen Lloyd MP will reveal more details about the re-launch of The Eastbourne Carnival and the new dangers facing the Eastbourne DGH.
A Royal Business Lunch Club
In case you had not noticed, its the Queens diamond jubilee this year. So who better to address the Brighton & Hove Business Lunch Club this Friday than the Queens representative in East Sussex, Lord Lieutenant Peter Field.
Peter is a good friend of the club and will be explaining about his increased workload this year and what Sussex is doing to celebrate the Jubilee.
And as if that were not enough, the new leader of Brighton & Hove Borough Council, Jason Kitcat, will be making his debut speech to the business community at our Friday meeting. Jason will be attending as a guest of club stalwart Andy Cheesman of City Cabs. Many thanks Andy!
Were expecting about 35 business leaders at the Brighton meeting, which takes place at the Sussex County Cricket Club ground in Hove. Lunch will be followed by an opportunity to watch first-class cricket, as Guernsey take on the might of Canada.
