Cumbria Crack

Carlisle Youth Zone hosting free business breakfast with Kate Willard of Carlisle Airport

Carlisle Youth Zone and Baines Wilson are inviting people to attend a free Business Breakfast with special guest speaker Kate Willard, Director of Partnership Development at Carlisle Airport.

Speaking only a week before Carlisle Airport sees its first commercial flight, Kate will talk about the final stages of the airport, its future, and her vision as to how important the airport will be for Carlisle and Cumbria as whole.

Additionally, Kate will give some insight into her own story. Having only one qualification as a trained actress, Kate believes her unconventional path to success has helped her overcome many of the obstacles that have faced the airport’s development.

Lynsey Buckle, Development Manager at Carlisle Youth Zone, who is hosting the event, commented: “As well as spearheading the opening of the airport, Kate is a shining example of what people that have less conventional academic backgrounds can achieve. As an organisation that is committed to developing and fulfilling the potential of young people, we’re thrilled that Kate will be speaking at Carlisle Youth Zone.”

Joanne Holborn from Baines Wilson, who is sponsoring the event, added “Having an airport on our doorstep will undoubtedly bring benefits to business across Cumbria. We encourage anyone who is keen to find out more to attend this event.”

The business breakfast will be on Friday 28th June, 8am – 10am at Carlisle Youth Zone and will include sandwiches and refreshments. If you would like to attend, please contact [email protected]
