The club, founded in the wake of the pandemic as the successor to the long-running Leeds Club and Trinity Club, offers members meeting rooms and other facilities in its new home at Leeds Becket University’s Rose Bowl on Portland Street.

“I’m honoured to be invited to be involved with the Unity Business Club,” said Lee-J Walker. “The rooms at the Rose Bowl offer excellent town-centre facilities for members to work, meet, and network.

“It offers an important service to business people, where they can host guests and discuss matters of mutual interest with fellow professionals and entrepreneurs.”

Simon Baldwin, associate director for knowledge exchange at Leeds Becket University, said, “We look forward to continuing to work with The Unity Club to share knowledge opportunities and business support for SMEs in the region and welcome Lee-J’s appointment as joint president.”

Unity Club chairman Keith Madeley said the new venue at the Rose Bowl offered members the chance to deepen ties with the university’s business school, based in the same building.

“It’s a fantastic centre,” he said. “Very modern. You’ve got a very large meeting room in the middle and three smaller meeting rooms so members can have private meetings.

“All my members who’ve been in have said, wow, it really looks the part.”

The Unity Business Club is open to members from 10am to 4pm from Monday to Friday. For further details visit the club’s website.
