Work Café aims to provide a productive and creative atmosphere to allow businesses to prosper, and to encourage the growth of a collaborative business community in Leeds. At Work Café you can book a room to hold meetings and share ideas with colleagues and clients or to work in a new environment.
Our in-person events give business owners and presenters a chance to introduce their content, share tips, guidance and experience to give back to the Leeds community. It also lets business owners showcase their business or client services, build new relationships and create new business connections. In April 2022 at the ‘Strategy Fundamentals: How to Build an Effective Strategy’ event, facilitator Chris Mitchell delivered an informative and practical taster session that aimed to uncover the true meaning of strategy, helping individuals or businesses to understand their real challenges and how to tackle them.
