Bringing together people from businesses across Leicestershire, ProfiLE1 was set up to provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for likeminded businesspeople to share stories, make new connections and come together as a business community. 

Our recent event in the Mattioli Woods offices in New Walk Place, Leicester is guaranteed to provide some interesting conversations, particularly thanks to our blend of guests and speakers. 

Speaking today we have three speakers ready to share their stories.
