It will be held at Carlisle Racecourse and speakers, including Debbie Francis, managing director of Direct Rail Services, and Jane Meek, corporate director of economic development, of Carlisle City Council, will talk about what the Borderlands initiative and the Northern Powerhouse means to Cumbria.
In addition to speeches, the audience will have the chance to share their views on the topics for discussion, and also raise issues that are important to them and their business, during question-and-answer sessions chaired by editor of in-Cumbria magazine, Luke Dicicco.
It follows the successful first business breakfast at Barrow's Abbey House Hotel, which saw Jo Lappin, chief executive of Cumbria LEP, Ivan Baldwin, vice president, Government and New Business at the National Nuclear Laboratory, Steve Phelps, managing director of Barrow-based Rovtech Solutions, Adrian Davis-Johnston, of Nuvia and Joanne Holborn, of Baines Wilson, talk to around 60 delegates about innovation.
A third business breakfast will be held at Rosehill Theatre, near Whitehaven, on Wednesday July 18.
The free events are sponsored by law firm Baines Wilson and in association with in-Cumbria Business Awards partner Sellafield Limited.
Mr Dicicco, who will also introduce speakers at the event, said: “I’m really looking forward to hearing from the leading business people and leaders in Cumbria about their thoughts on Borderlands and the Northern Powerhouse.
"These are initiatives that could give our county the opportunity to grow and thrive, but we need to make sure Cumbria gets those chances. The Borderlands will give the region a new perspective and the Northern Powerhouse doesn't stop at Manchester.
"Our speakers will certainly provide some real food for thought. It promises to be an informative and engaging event.”
