HBW 2024 Social Post Landscape 1

Humber Business Week 2024 comprises over 40 events across five days, culminating in The Business Day at Bridlington Spa on Friday 7th June. A huge range of businesses have put together a programme of events on topics such as mental health and workplace culture, cyber security for business, and the environment and biodiversity.  

As is now traditional, Bondholders will be kicking off Humber Business Week on Destination Monday with the very first event – this year, we will be talking all about the brand-new Humber Place Narrative. For the last few months, working with a consortium of place brand consultants and local creative agency Pace Communications, we have been developing a fresh new ‘brand filter’ for the Humber; one that our people and those working on behalf of the region can understand, enthuse about and effectively advocate. 

Join us at the MKM Stadium on the morning of the 3rd of June for ‘Unveiling the Humber Placebrand”  - you can find out more and book your place at Unveiling the Humber Placebrand  

What is happening at Humber Business Week 2024? 

There are over 40 events happening during Humber Business Week, some of which are hosted by or involve Bondholders. Details of all events are on the Humber Business Week website and are being added to as more events are confirmed.  

Here is our pick of events from each day of Biz Week. 

Monday 3rd June 

Aside from our own event which kicks off the week, Monday is already looking like a busy day to start us off.  

At 10.45am at the MKM Stadium, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are partnering with Reality Solutions to provide an insightful event focused on Mental Health Best Practices tailored specifically for business leaders. Having been to sessions with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind previously, this event is sure to be full of education about mental health and the impact on the workplace, and full of useful takeaways for businesses of all types.

From another busy day, we have picked out two events for you 

Firstly, there is a late afternoon session about ChatGPT at Hull College. We have seen award winning EdTech speaker Deb Miller speak on this topic previously, so we know you are in for a treat. Deb will take you on a highly engaging journey through the fundamentals of ChatGPT and leave you knowing more about how you could (or could not) use it in your business. Booking essential!

Secondly, one that will evoke a range of emotions and inspire you to do more is a session from Rose James of Hull Children’s University talking about why businesses should engage with children. With case studies from business already working with primary school children, Rose will demonstrate the benefits and challenges of engaging with a younger generation. Not to be missed!
