This years annual C&I Dinner for the North East region was held at the Marriott in Leeds on 23rd November, and again was very well attended by in-house and private practice professionals from across the region. Miguel Florit and Andy Balmer attended from Florit Brooke, joined by guests on our table from Jet 2, Addleshaw Goddard, Stanley Black & Decker, Mamas & Papas, and Communisis. As ever it was good to see old friends and new contacts in what is something of a calendar highlight in the industry sector. The evening also marked the transition from long-standing Chair of the group Carol Williams, to Sapna Bedi, who has long been a stalwart of the C&I group and under whose leadership we are sure it will continue to go from strength to strength. Many thanks to the organisers and to our guests for what was a very enjoyable evening, and we look forward to attending next year’s event!
