First of all, thanks to everyone who attended the February event, we had a great time and we hope you did too!
The next Refresh Teesside event is Thursday 19th March. It will be held at Mink Bar in Middlesbrough and you are invited to join us from 6pm.
We have another great event lined up for you this month, with some freebies and suprises in store, so make sure you don’t miss it!
We are pleased to announce our 3 speakers for this months event:
Michael Fotis - Smart Money People
Refreshing an industry in Teesside
Smart Money People launched in October 2014 in Teesside. The team have turned an idea into a business and signed their first enterprise client within a few months of launching. Michael will talk about how Smart Money People is going, what the next stage is, and how innovation from Teesside can spread across the UK.

Our goal is to bring together the best and brightest creatives in the North East to share knowledge, promote talent and encourage collaboration!
The events are relaxed and run by people like you. We get anywhere between 60 to 100 people at our events, we cover all aspects of the creative industry and we welcome people from all over the North East of England.
You never know what will happen on the night and there is no guarantee who you might bump in to.
- Are you looking for a new job?
- Are you looking to recruit?
- Are you looking to connect with a highly skilled designer, developer, photographer, engineer, SEO consultant or a full service agency?
- Do you want to make connections within your industry in the area you work?
- Do you want to relax in a friendly environment and talk to like minded people?
- Do you want to learn something new?
- Do you like socialising over a few beers with colleagues?
- Do you want to challenge yourself and break out of your shell?

If you answer yes to any of these, we hope to see you on Thursday.
When & Where
Refresh Teesside follows the manifesto of other Refreshing Cities around the world. However, we have decided to open the events up to more than just designers and developers. We welcome all those who work in the creative industry including: photographers, marketing, printers, designers, developers etc. We made this decision in recognition of the importance of digital communities working closely together and increasing their understanding of other’s work, thus reaping the mutual benefits of collaboration.
