Men at Lunch

Men at Lunch

Inspire – Educate – Inform


An opportunity to attend a presentation featuring topics that will be targeted towards a male audience, followed by an enjoyable steak lunch. Networking opportunities will naturally occur with like-minded businessmen also attending.


We are delighted that our speaker at the next event will be Mike Cratchley from MCA Business Growth Consultancy Coaching & Mentoring.


Mike is a Tees Valley-based business growth coach, mentor and consultant. Over a 40 year career, Mike has formed, grown and sold three very successful small businesses – all with the help of a Business Coach and Mentor. Prior to that, he held senior management roles with Hotpoint, ITT Consumer Electronics and Unipart. He is currently providing his services to SME clients across the UK.


Mike will be opening up the conversation by sharing his own experiences about managing stress and creating a good work/life balance during this lunchtime event.


The venue has lots of free car parking right outside the door so need to worry about a ticket or having a pocket full of small change!

Still very much alive & kicking!

You will have course heard me talk a lot about Fast Lane Business Networking of late, and I now seem to be known as the ‘networking person’ to speak to, which is great. But Fast Lane Business Networking is an event brought to you by my main business which is In The Fast Lane Events.

For those that don’t know In The Fast Lane Events is an established event planning/management business working with startups, SME’s & corporates on a wide range of events, such as new business launches, new product launches, expos, team building, AGM’s, corporate dinners, and of course networking. Working with companies to listen & understand what they would like to achieve from holding an event, helping them plan, organise & manage that event too. An event in turn is also great for marketing your business to a wider audience, and to help you stand out from your competitors.

The venues that we have access to are not just in the North East, where we are based, we have over the years built up connections with venues throughout the UK and abroad. You may not realise that event organisers, more often then not, are given preferential rates at venues, which is worth considering when thinking about organising an event for your business.

We also offer a venue finding service & consultancy, so if you would like to plan & arrange your own event, we will still be more than happy to assist.

Remember an event doesn’t need to be expensive, but it does need to be effective!

If you would like to hear how In The Fast Lane Events can help your business be sure to give us a call or drop us an email, we’ll be more than happy to chat.
