The North Yorkshire Fellowship Forum will take the form of a series of online video sessions with guest speakers, similar to TED talks, on topics of interest to directors and business leaders.

The format will vary from time to time, but essentially it will begin with a brief welcome and introduction.

The keynote speaker will be a subject matter expert, who will speak for approximately 30 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. We aim to close the meeting after 45/60 minutes.

The topics are chosen by suggestions from members or Ambassadors, and will include ideas, tips and practical insights to help directors with typical issues including those relates to the current Covid-19 virus but to other issues confronting directors at this time.

You are welcome to join any or all sessions if you feel they are topics of interest.
