Based in Ilkley, Thrive Yorkshire was set up by the Ilkley Business forum as an organisation who’s goal was “to help it’s members THRIVE”

Steve attended THRIVE Yorkshire in late September with the hope of meeting new businesses and creating new relationships in the local area. The event was opened by Sir Gary Verity, the chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire and was sponsored by the well-known local radio station Stray FM. THRIVE Yorkshire is a fantastic opportunity for small/medium enterprises to learn new tips and strategies for their business. The day was full of events, from speaking seminars with the likes of Kate Hardcastle and Jennifer Holloway to creative workshops from Mike Ward & Chris Allen.

We loved listening to the local business – Ilkley Cinema, sharing their own success stories.

We met a bunch of fantastic people and had some great conversations. Walker Foster, one of our very own clients were one of the main sponsors of the event – without sponsors events like these wouldn’t be possible. Sponsoring networking events like these are a great way to open up to new audiences and hopefully get many leads as a result!

Aside from getting possible clients, Steve also won a wonderful hamper containing many goodies from Real Food Ilkey. With the likes of Addingham Fruit Liqueurs, Love Brownies Bakery and many others.


If it sounds like something you are interested in attending, visit Thrive Yorkshire to see when the next meeting will be coming around. We look forward to seeing you there!
