Teesside Joint Supper 2021

Join our Teesside Pan Professional Supper Networking Event

A fantastic opportunity to network with professional service contacts throughout Teesside.

Last year’s event attracted more than 100 attendees from the region.

Teesside’s favourite chocolate bars

For 2021, in place of the regular quiz, we will be establishing Teesside’s favourite chocolate bar through a series of knockout ties judged by you the attendees.

Let’s introduce the contenders: (click for more details)

  1. Cadbury’s Dairy Milk
  2. Galaxy bar
  3. Snickers
  4. Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut
  5. Kit Kat (4 fingers)
  6. Terry’s Chocolate Orange
  7. Wispa
  8. Crunchie
  9. Bounty
  10. Dairy Milk Caramel
  11. Mars bar
  12. Twix
  13. Milky Way
  14. Double Decker
  15. Cadbury’s Flake
  16. Curly Whirly

Tonight we will find the answer to the age-long question: What is Teesside’s favourite chocolate bar?

The result will be determined by 4 rounds of discussions by break-out groups.  Attendees will be split across 8 groups – akin to being at a table for our face-to-face Joint Suppers.

There are 16 bars to be discussed (see above and here).

Each group has to consider two bars and establish which one they think is better than the other.  The discussion will end after 7 minutes; groups will get a notification 60 seconds before the groups are closed.  In each breakout group the facilitator/host has a casting vote in the event of a tie within the group.  Each group’s spokesperson will then feed back to the whole audience.

The groups are mixed up for the next round – half the members move on to a new breakout room to enhance everyone’s networking experience during the evening.

The successful 8 bars are then allocated: two bars to two groups.  The groups again discuss and decide who is the winner but must also note the voting of the group’s members.  Again, feedback after discussion closes and if there is a split decision (1 group votes for each bar) then we refer to the individual votes within the two groups.

That gives us semi-finalist 4 bars which are allocated two bars to four groups.  Repeat as above…

That gives us the finalists and all groups consider the merits of the final two bars.  Same feedback process to produce a winner.

Feedback should be no more than 1 minute per group please.

Teesside Society Annual Dinner 2019

Join us for our annual sell out dinner on Teesside – book early to avoid disappointment.

Speaker – Kevin Connelly

Kevin Connelly is one of the stars of BBC’s Dead Ringers.

Whilst managing his brother-in-law’s hotel near Thirsk, Kevin would entertain customers with impromptu impressions.

As a result, he was invited to speak at the Yorkshire Cricket Club dinner. Engagements followed thick and fast, and Kevin eventually decided to abandon catering and become a professional entertainer.

Aside from Dead Ringers, Kevin’s many television credits include Sports Review of the Year, It’s Just Not Cricket with Rory Bremner, and The Full Motty.

He was also the resident comedian on ITV’s Sports Show, providing instant celebrity comment on the week’s sporting disasters.

Kevin’s impressions are not limited to sporting personalities. His after dinner repertoire includes a host of politicians and TV stars.

In support of MFC Foundation

A charity raffle will be held on the night with proceeds going towards MFC Foundation


MFC Foundation works across Teesside, delivering sport, health, education and inclusion projects that raise aspirations and change lives amongst the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in local communities.

MFC-Foundation-logoMFC Foundation was set up by Steve Gibson in 1996 as the independent charitable arm of Middlesbrough FC. Though it uses the official ‘Boro’ brand to engage with various members of the community, MFC Foundation exists as a separate entity from the football club.

‘Our mission is simple, by harnessing the passion and power of the Football Club brand, we work to raise aspirations and improve the life chances of young people and adults across Teesside.

We work in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Teesside, engaging with those who are hard to reach through the delivery of inspiring sport, education, health and inclusion projects.’

Teesside 2017 - Northern Society of Chartered AccountantsCost

Tickets are £41.67 + VAT

Online booking closes on Friday 10 November.

Speaker – Lembit Opik

Lembit-OpikBangor

Born in 1965 in Bangor, Northern Ireland to Estonian parents, Lembit Öpik is one of the most characterful and recognised politicians of his generation.

Newcastle upon Tyne

In 1988, after some dramatic years in student politics, Lembit joined American multi-national giant Procter & Gamble, where he worked in the advertising department on a number of household brands including Ariel and Fairy Liquid, rising to the role of Global Human Resources Training & Development Manager.

At the same time he pursued a parallel career in politics as a Liberal Democrat councillor in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Drinks-at-Teesside-Dinner - Northern Society of Chartered AccountantsMontgomeryshire

In 1997, Lembit was elected to Parliament as the MP for Montgomeryshire in Wales. Very quickly he began to be recognised as one of the more energetic and entertaining MPs in the country, with regular appearances on everything from Question Time to Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, and most of the major entertainment shows in between.

‘The show had to go on’

In 2010, Lembit lost his seat in one of the most surprising results of the General Election. Despite this blow, 5 hours later he kept his promise to appear on the election special edition of Have I Got News for You in what was regarded as one of the strongest performances for any politician on the show. As Lembit said ‘I lost my seat, not my resolve. The show had to go on.’

TSCA - Northern Society of Chartered AccountantsSince then, contrary to expectations, Lembit has continued to increase his profile and in 2010 appeared on the blockbusting reality show I’m a Celebrity – get me out of here!

In August 2016 Lembit performed in the comedy Rocking Your Vote in which he played himself. The play was on the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In November 2017 Lembit will be able to add entertaining to his many feats! Don’t miss it!
