Feel good events in February
A recent report from Eventbrite showed that companies are more likely to host an event to bring people together rather than focusing on networking or lead generation for businesses. We’ve seen this reflected in events across Leeds in February, which are equally as beneficial for the community as they are the individual.
Take a look at what’s happening over the next few weeks – which are packed full of upskilling knowledge, improving social conscience & being part of positive changes in the city.
