Meetings take place quarterly. They start at 09:00 and include a buffet lunch. They end at around 13:30.

There is no membership fee. Your investment is £125 per meeting, including buffet lunch.
Our next LEEN meeting will take place on the morning of October 16th at St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge.

The meeting will focus on ‘Health and Wellbeing’ which was one of the top requests as a topic for a future meeting from previous delegates.
