Latest HTEA meeting held at Greenhead Park
The latest meeting of the Huddersfield Town Enterprise Academy (HTEA) took place on Friday evening, with over 65 people enjoying a 'pow-wow' in Greenhead Park!
The meeting, which is sponsored by Chadwick Lawrence and Grant Thornton, survived some very inclement weather thanks to a fantastic tipi provided by Kirklees Council.
The star of the show was undoubtedly the npower League 1 Play-Off Trophy, which was on hand to allow delegates to have a photo. A few Town fans attending the 'Party in the Park' event even got in on the act!
Huddersfield Town's Commercial Director Sean Jarvis addressed the attendees on the evening, making it clear that the Terriers are not in the Championship to make up the numbers, and he added:
"I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who came along to the latest HTEA meeting on Friday. Once again the event offered something different - in this case the venue and the Play-Off Trophy!
"It was great to see some new faces and I think we are starting to see some very fruitful business relationships take shape as a direct result of the Enterprise Academy.
"You could feel that promotion to the Championship has given everyone with an interest in Huddersfield Town a renewed vigour and that's really exciting from my point of view. There are lots of exciting opportunities for businesses that want to get involved with us and I'd encourage anyone to get in touch with me via firstname.lastname@example.org to explore those further."
Another hot topic on the evening was Huddersfield's 'Place to Make It' campaign. Mandi Taylor from the Sharp Agency spoke on the campaign and why Huddersfield businesses should get on board.
Guests then enjoyed the 'Concert in the Park', featuring Abba and Bee Gees tribute bands.
The event at Greenhead Park was the latest in a line of unique and innovative HTEA meetings, following on from previous get-togethers at Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Pontefract Races and the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield.
If you missed the event, don't worry - another HTEA event, powered by Yorkshire Business Growth, will be scheduled soon. In the meantime the discussion continues on the official LinkedIn page of the HTEA - click HERE to get involved!
