Past speakers have included Bill Scott, of Wilton Engineering, and Alan Lloyd, yard director at Heerema.
Samantha Lee, director of Publicity Seekers which organises the evets, said: “Tees Valley Unlimited has an essential role to play in the on-going regeneration of the area and we look forward to hearing its plans for how we can all play our part in securing growth and long term prosperity.
“But the Business Breakfast is also about bringing companies together to learn from each other and how to develop strong partnerships between smaller and bigger businesses.”
