I’m pleased to have been invited to Yorkshire to speak at the Buy Yorkshire Conference 2013. It’s refreshing to see the business community take such a positive stand for the regional economy in these days of cuts, austerity and media led doom and gloom.

Events like this are so important for the region’s business community. It’s a real chance to move your business forward, receive good advice from people who have been there and done it as well as meet many like-minded business people.

When I was first approached and asked if I would speak I was delighted. Despite facing some tough times, there are opportunities available to those who are willing to go out and get them.

I was really looking forward to sharing my experience with other business professionals at the Buy Yorkshire Conference 2013. It’s been a hard slog to go from leaving school at 15 with no qualifications, to running a successful company with brand recognition throughout Europe, but my ‘uplifting’ story shows that it can be done.
