Bedern Breakfast – Networking with a Conscience



So what’s this all about?

Bedern Breakfast bring together like-minded business owners from York and Yorkshire, creating a peer-to-peer forum of Entrepreneurs and Business Owners. Each event will feature a ‘guest in the chair’ for an interview style presentation, with interviewer Alan Kaye.




Our ‘Guest in the Chair’ has so far included some established business names, including, and not limited to, Rob McWilliam, Chief Financial officer for ASDA, Rebecca Thompson, President of the CIOB and Rachel Kay, MD of Green-Tech.

Come along and hear the interview, meet new connections and enjoy a delicious breakfast from our in-house caterer, Roger Lee.

Bedern Breakfasts, like Bedern Hall itself, are run on a ‘non-profit’ basis with any surplus generated being used to secure good speakers and to support The Bedern Hall Foundation – a fund raising endeavor created to ensure the future of this fine medieval hall.

What’s in it for me?

We offer:

  • A unique and valuable experience to network with other high caliber individuals.
  • A buffet service, full English breakfast plus healthy options also available
  • Time at the end of the event for informal meeting
  • An introduction to Bedern Hall as a prospective venue for your own events.


When and where?

The breakfasts will commence promptly at 7:30am and will finish by 9.15am.
