**THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE NEW CHARLES CLINKARD HEAD OFFICE**
The next Breakfast Exchange will take place at 7.30am on Thursday 6th October at Charles Clinkard's new HQ at Cannon Park, Middlesbrough.
Brought to you by Middlesbrough Council, this FREE networking event provides businesses with an opportunity to meet up on a less formal basis, chat, share, learn and do business.
When Charles and Eveline Clinkard opened their first shoe shop in Middlesbrough in 1924, they little knew they were founding a footwear empire - and a family dynasty that still runs the company 90 years later. Today, the Clinkard Group has 33 stores across the UK, and Managing Director Charles is the third generation to be in charge. The company has won countless national awards, has an annual turnover in excess of £40 million and employs more than 550 people.
This event is a fantastic opportunity to hear Managing Director Charles Clinkard talk about the history of the business and the company's recent relocation of its head office to Middlesbrough. Charles will also be joined by Trading Director, Tim Payne who will be providing an insight into the future of retail. After the presentations, there will also be an opportunity to take a tour of the building for those that would like to.
