Lady Barbara Judge to speak at Yorkshire Coast Leaders’ Lunch

One of the UK’s best connected and most influential business leaders will be the guest speaker at the Institute of Directors’ first ever Yorkshire Coast Leaders’ Lunch. 

Lady Barbara Judge, the IoD’s first female chairman and a distinguished commercial lawyer, will join guests at the Scarborough Spa Complex on 23 September. 

Lady Judge has a wealth of experience from senior executive and non-executive roles in the private and public sectors. She is currently chair of the Pension Protection Fund and the Energy Institute of University College London, as well as a non-executive director of Portmeirion Group. 

Also attending the prestigious lunch as special guests will be Barry Dodd CBE, Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, and Sir Gary Verity of Welcome to Yorkshire. 

The event will be hosted by Natalie Sykes, regional director for the IoD in Yorkshire and the North East. 

The lunch is a pre-cursor to the IoD’s regional conference, which will be held at the Scarborough Spa in Spring 2017. 

The Leaders’ Lunch runs from noon – 2pm. Tickets are £30 for IoD members and £42 to non-members. To book, email
