Chamber Annual Dinner 'A Hull of a Journey' & 'Finding Eden'

Date December 07, 2018 Location Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel
Chamber Annual Dinner 'A Hull of a Journey' & 'Finding Eden'

Join us for an exclusive evening of fine dining and entertainment at the Chamber’s 182nd Annual Dinner.

Our principal Guest Speakers this year are two of the most inspirational passionate and buccaneering women in Yorkshire Business. Louise Cheeseman, Managing Director of Hull Trains and Judith Donovan CBE, Chair of the Eden Project.

‘A Hull of a Story’ Louise is the only female Managing
Director in the UK rail industry. As a single mum with two children, she started her career by becoming a train guard. Her remarkable progress includes stints as the General Manager for the Docklands Light Railway which included responsibility for managing operations for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Then she went to Australia to work on a light rail bid in Sydney before returning to the UK to work with
Manchester’s Metrolink tramway. She then came back to her home City of Hull as the MD of Hull Trains.

Jim Harris, Centre Manager of St Stephen’s, described her recent speech to Hull BID as a “Hull of a Journey”, amazing, inspirational and passionately told!” Listening to Louise will help you understand
everything from leaves on the line and delays on the tracks, to when the new trains for Hull will arrive in 2019.

‘Finding Eden’ Joining Louise is Judith Donovan CBE, a buccaneering, brilliant and inspiring Yorkshire woman in business as well as the Chair of the Eden Project. Judith made her name in Bradford as a pioneering entrepreneur of her own direct marketing company. As a Hull University graduate she went on to become “Yorkshire Woman of the Year” and a Millennium Commissioner, amongst many other national accolades. With her wicked wit and sense of humour, Judith will recount a career of serious achievement enlivened with her own unique passion, humour and charm.

The evening will conclude with dancing to an Abba-themed disco in support of CASE. What a finish!

So join us for a passionate, inspirational, funny and Abba-themed night at our 182nd Annual Dinner.
