Almost 40 businesses from the local area attended the first ever Iron Business Network Breakfast Event on Wednesday morning.

Guests were greeted with hot breakfast rolls, pastries and refreshments upon arrival before some informal networking took place. 

After the welcome and introductions from Scunthorpe’s Head of Commercial Martin Ellis, guests took part in some speed networking before Iron CEO James Rodwell took to the microphone to discuss the importance of the football clubs role in the community followed by Operations Manager Pete Wallace who outlined the plans for the Iron’s new stadium. 

The event finished with optional tour of the stadium for guests and further informal networking. 

Martin Ellis commented after the event, “It was great to see so many local businesses at Glanford Park this morning and I’d like to thank them all for coming down. I hope they found it useful and made plenty of new contacts. We are keen to help the local business community engage with each other more and hopefully these events will help do just that.”   

The next Iron Business Network event is on Wednesday 20th January and for more details or to register your interest then please email or call 01724 747678.
