The Business Exchange

Share your knowledge - grow your business

The Business Exchange is a network of senior leaders from businesses and organisations in the North East and North Yorkshire - events are organised throughout the year at Teesside University Darlington.

Who is the Business Exchange for?

These events are for senior leaders in the region. Whether you are a managing director of an engineering company or the financial director of a packaging company, they will inspire, connect and add value.

What is the exchange?

You hear from a high-profile national or regional business speaker who shares their business knowledge, followed by a question and answer session, and networking time.

Speakers touch on practical business issues that resonate with your own experiences - branding, managing through a recession, developing your business, who you employ, how you grow.


Meetings are free and a great opportunity to exchange valuable business knowledge and network with your peers. Each lasts 60 to 90 minutes, held at the beginning or end of the working day to minimise operational disruption.

Laura Woods, Director of Academic Enterprise at Teesside University sees great benefit. 'The synergies produced by like-minded regional business people coming together offers tremendous value, not only for the attendees themselves but for the businesses and organisations they represent, helping us achieve our aim of inspiring and growing the regional economy.'
