HullBID assembles top speakers for Biz Week highlight

HullBID assembles top speakers for Biz Week highlight

Natasha is the CEO of the Sailors’ Children’s Society

NATASHA Barley, Paul Anderson and David Kilburn, who are all well known in business but each with a very different day job, will step up at The Deep on Wednesday June 5 to talk to an audience of regional business leaders about their lives and careers.

Natasha is the CEO of the Sailors’ Children’s Society, a Hull-based national charity supporting families of seafarers in times of crisis such as a bereavement, diagnosis of an illness or family breakdown. Natasha has worked in the charity sector for 11 years and was in education prior to that having worked internationally teaching in Canada, China, and Thailand.

Paul became Chief Constable of Humberside in 2023 and has been an officer for over 33 years, with experience across the ranks from community and investigative posts through to specialist operations. Paul has continued the force’s remarkable journey from being in special measures just six years ago to achieving an “outstanding” rating in six out of nine categories in a report released last November by His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services.

David founded MKM Building Supplies in 1995, alongside close friend Peter Murray, and has grown the business to more than 100 branches across the UK. He still plays an active role in the company today and also uses his significant platform to help influence and nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs. David received a CBE in 2023 in recognition of his services to the construction industry and charity.

Kathryn Shillito, HullBID Executive Director, said: “Our Inspiring People dinner has become one of the big attractions of Humber Business Week and we are delighted this year to present three very individual and highly regarded speakers from the private, public and charity sectors, who will entertain and inspire.

“Natasha, Paul and David are all prominent, successful and engaging figures with some fascinating stories to tell.”

The dinner will take place from 6.45pm until 10.30pm. Admission is free and priority will be given to businesses located within the Hull Business Improvement District (BID), however additional tickets may be available on a reserve list for non-BID members.
