In anticipation of our largest drinks evening of the year, which will take place at the Blackhouse The Grill on the Square in Leeds on Yorkshire Day, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce our sponsor, Elite Telemarketing Solutions.

With the business stemming from humble beginnings, when the company began generating £50 appointments for local window cleaners, two years later and times are very different, as we now see before us a premium lead generation company that has turned the tide and gone transatlantic!

Elite Telemarketing Solutions now generates face to face appointments, online demonstrations and exploratory calls for its clients across almost every sector – from Education to Telecoms, IT security to Professional Training providers. Staff work around the clock, working with partners across the globe, from Florida to Brisbane (via Leeds!).

Despite the business experiencing busy times, we managed to have a quick catch-up with Managing Director, Nick Stringer about his reasons for sponsoring the event and what’s up next for Elite Telemarketing Solutions.

Why have you chosen to sponsor the Yorkshire Day event?
Getting Yorkshire’s most reputable business people in one room isn’t easy, but at the Yorkshire Mafia’s events it’s a given! If those people attending can remember Elite Telemarketing Solutions and our b2b lead generation initiatives once the hangover has subsided, it’s money well spent!

Do you usually sponsor events or is this the first one that you’ve sponsored?
The Yorkshire Day event is our first event of its type.

What are you hoping to achieve through sponsorship of the event?
We’re undergoing a hugely successful growth strategy at the moment, so sponsoring this event is simply a way of getting our brand out there amongst fellow Yorkshire businesses.

What do you think is different about working in Yorkshire, what sets it apart?
I’ll leave questions like that to people like Sir Gary Verity! If you live and work in Yorkshire, you’ll know it’s a very exciting place to be right now.

Are there any interesting developments that you’d like to share about your business?
If I were to say it’s been a busy time for us, it would be an understatement! Following the Buy Yorkshire Conference, we saw an unprecedented demand for our services, which has kept us on our toes ever since. Along with relocating to new offices in Wetherby, we’ve recently launched our #GeneratingLeeds initiative, which will lead to the opening of a bespoke office space in Leeds city centre.

As a Yorkshireman born and bred I have a burning passion for driving business growth within our county. Working for clients in London and Florida is great, but there’s nothing like seeing Yorkshire clients of ours turn leads into cash in the bank. That’s what it’s all about really!

If, like Nick, you think that your business could reap the rewards from sponsoring one of the Yorkshire Mafia’s events simply get in touch with our Events Team at events@theyorkshiremafia.com.

The Yorkshire Day drinks evening will be held on Tuesday 1st August, 5pm – 11.55pm, at Blackhouse, The Grill on The Square, Leeds.
