FULLY BOOKED – Business Leaders Lunch

This event is now fully booked.

A new event added to the 2024 calendar and one you will not want to miss.

Join us for a two-course sit down lunch, network amongst the Cambridgeshire business community and hear from two fascinating speakers.

Guest speakers

You will hear a talk from Rob Bridge, Chief Executive Officer at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, looking into the year ahead across the County.

You will also have the chance to hear a talk from the Endurance Limits Team, an Adventure and Expedition Team made up of four adventurers.

Their next project is The Amazon River Row planned for September 2024, the Endurance Limits team plan to row the entire navigable length of the Amazon River – the longest river in South America and the second longest river in the world, with a distance of approximately 4,000 miles. Their goal is to raise a donation of £50,000 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity in London, which will provide support and resources to children in need who are being treated at the facility.

The team will likely face many challenges during their expedition, including dangerous wildlife, extreme weather conditions, and treacherous currents. They will have to navigate around sandbanks, rapids, and waterfalls, as well as negotiate with local communities and authorities along the way.

Despite the obstacles, Endurance Limits Team is determined to complete their mission in 28 days, beating the current Guinness Record (35 days) and make a positive impact on the lives of children in need. To accomplish the new record the team must row 24 hours a day, all 4 members of the team are expected to swap places to keep the pace up.

Trans Global Logistics UK, a member of the Chamber, is proud to be a transporting the rowboat for a journey that will be a testament to the power of determination, teamwork, and resilience, and they hope that Endurance Limits team will inspire others to take on their own challenges and make a difference in the world.
