Welcome to the Entrepreneurs’ Forum Global Entrepreneurship Week conference for what promises to be an inspirational day for North East business owners.

The time committed to the package is no higher than 18 hours. This package is charged to credit cards on the basis of 50% up front and 50% at the end of three months.

Supporting those who lead high-potential, highgrowth enterprises is what the Forum is all about and, by sharing the lessons learnt from those who have been there and done it, we hope to help you create the practical maps and navigational tools that will maximise your own business growth. Recently the North East was named ‘the best region outside of London’ to start a company. This shows how far we have come and is something we need to be shouting about and, more importantly, building upon so we are not only a great place to launch a business, but also to grow and scale one too. Great entrepreneurs have and always will be an essential part of great societies as job and wealth

Nigel Mills creators, innovators and philanthropists. The ambition to continually grow and have an impact on the marketplace is the most important attitude of scale-up entrepreneurs and, as a region, we need to make it as easy as possible for them to do business. Despite the economic uncertainty of Brexit, the North East is in a strong position to create jobs and prosperity and it falls on us, the entrepreneurs, to capitalise on the new opportunities and tackle the challenges that arise head-on. The short-term may be hard but they say that Fortune Favours the Brave, so if we can come together to support each other, think of what we could achieve. ENJOY YOUR DAY!

Nigel Mills

Chaired by GRAHAM ROBB, Entrepreneurs’ Forum board member and senior partner at Recognition PR, our panel will be exploring the different challenges they have had to face at various stages of business growth.

@richardmlane

RICHARD LANE durhamlane

MOHAMMED BASHIR Boro Taxis

Before becoming a recognised keynote speaker, sales trainer and sales improvement thought leader, Richard spent his career in sales management and leadership positions for learning and software technology companies. Throughout his career he has led both UK and global sales organisations to consistently out-perform expectations by selling, and helping others to sell, complex solutions. In 2011, Richard co-founded durhamlane, a leading UK sales performance company, with the aim to help commercial teams and organisations to grow in a sustainable manner. Growing quickly themselves, durhamlane already employ 30 staff and turned over almost £1m last year.

After leaving school at 16, Mohammed embarked on an entrepreneurial career that began with a corner shop which he sold for a profit to fund a successful venture into men’s fashion. In 1982, at the age of just 18, Bashir founded Boro Taxis with three cars. At that point he didn’t even have a driving licence so worked in the office until he passed his test. Now the third largest private-hire operator in the UK with more than 1,000 vehicles, Boro Taxis employs more than 1,000 people in Tees Valley, turns over in excess of £4m and is currently undergoing a £2m investment programme to update its fleet of vehicles. @andewjamesltd

ANDREW TOMLINSON Andrew James

A graduate of Sunderland Business School, Andrew set up his online retail business in partnership with his cousin James in 2005, when they launched their first product, the Raclette (a table top grill). As online shopping boomed, the next 10 years saw their selection grow incredibly quickly, starting with kitchen gadgets and expanding into homeware, garden and pet products, culminating in a current range of over 500 products. The company achieved turnover of more than £20m in both 2014 and 2015, and huge growth both within the UK and in overseas markets means Andrew James has outgrown its current premises and is due to move to a new headquarters and distribution centre in Seaham in 2017.

#NEentrepreneurs

Sponsored by:

@CambridgeJBS A senior lecturer at the Judge Business School, Peter teaches entrepreneurship and innovation management and started the first entrepreneurship department within the University of Cambridge; teaching what he has spent most of his working life doing. Peter has started nine companies; five he has grown and sold, two were closed, and Peter is chairman of three companies at present and on the board of another six. One of these companies is a £30m seed-fund that invests in early stage businesses; another (Pod Point) makes electric vehicle charging systems and has been identified as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies. Pod Point raised £4m investment last year by crowdfunding. Peter likes start-ups but gets really excited by new businesses that have the potential for fast growth. His research is into what makes new ventures grow faster, which he believes should be every entrepreneur’s target.

What is the thing you are most proud of? Helping young people to start their own businesses and helping them grow the business. What has been your biggest challenge? Getting my springer spaniel to become a well behaved gun-dog. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? You really can start and be a success at your own business. Who, dead or alive, would you like to have dinner with? William Wilberforce. Who do you look to for inspiration? My good wife.

ROBERT FORRESTER Vertu Motors plc

#NEentrepreneurs

Sponsored by:

@vertumotors Born in Lancashire, Robert studied at Oxford University and qualified as a chartered accountant with Arthur Andersen. After nine years he became a director with property investment company Brookhouse Group, in Manchester.

What was your first paid job?

Aged 29, he came close to dying from meningitis and while convalescing at home secured the finance director’s position at Reg Vardy plc. He stayed for seven years until the business was sold to Pendragon in 2006, the same year he established Vertu at the age of 36.

Bill Teasdale, former partner at PwC.

The Vertu Motors story began when it was admitted to AIM (Alternative Investment Market) having secured £25m from investors, and two months later acquired the entire share capital of Bristol Street Motors.

Whats the best piece of advice you’ve ever had and who gave it to you?

Alongside Robert’s outstanding leadership and innovation in the field of human resources and training, acquisition has been key to Vertu’s accelerated growth, with new outlets being added to the group every year. From a standing start, Vertu has now grown into the UK’s fifth biggest motor retailer, with over 110 outlets across the UK, generating annual revenues in excess of £2.4bn.

Auditor with Arthur Andersen. Who do you look to for inspiration?

What has been your biggest challenge? Trying to balance an obsession with work with being a husband and father.

Write down the five things that are the most important to achieve tomorrow and do them (Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People). Where do you see your company in five years? Bigger; and the best in the industry.

KEITH, JACQUI & GARY MILLER Miller UK Limited

Sponsored by:

Miller UK Limited is an international business selling an innovative range of attachments that offer users of construction equipment improved machine versatility and increased profitability.

What was your first paid job?

Founded in 1978 by the current chairman Keith Miller as a then sole trading entity he was quickly joined by his brother Gary then sister Jacqui to form a formidable sibling team that would see the Miller brand go on to become recognised globally as the world’s largest privately owned attachment manufacturer within the construction vehicle industry sector.

Gary: A small supermarket trolley boy at Law’s Stores aged 16.

After navigating the business through three recessions and successfully defending the companies IP/ trade secrets when their biggest customer and the world’s number one manufacturer of construction machinery stole their ‘know how’, the Miller trio stepped aside from running the daily business operations in early 2014 and handed over to an executive team carefully selected to meet the future challenges of both the business and industry sector.

Gary: Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Today you will hear first-hand the challenges faced of working with your siblings, the good, bad and sometimes ugly as passions flare and opinions differ. Listen how they overcame these challenges and went onto build a business that is today a global brand.

Gary: Kid the world but never kid yourself, a friends father.

Never has the expression ‘blood is thicker than water’ been truer as their business journey cumulated in a fight for their business life, values and integrity of unparalleled proportions. Just what were they thinking of by daring to take these global giants on in a modern day David vs Goliath case?

#NEentrepreneurs

Keith: A milk round aged 6. Jacqui: Working for my aunty in school holidays aged 11.

Who do you look to for inspiration? Keith: Global business leaders, I respect many! Jacqui: I find inspiration in lots of people I meet on a daily basis. I like to think that we can learn from each other, always an open mind and forever an optimist.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever had and who gave it to you? Keith: Build a focussed team and think global, the late Sir John Harvey-Jones. Jacqui: Follow your instincts and don’t take anyone’s word, get it in writing - a customer who was MD of Hitachi Construction Machinery.

Where do you see your company in five years? Keith: More organic growth; being the OEMs number one supplier for our products. Jacqui: Supplying more markets, opening more factories and releasing more innovative new products to ensure our brand is continuously recognised as the number one in our field. Gary: More growth and increasing profits.

CAMERON SAUL Bottletop

#NEentrepreneurs

Sponsored by:

@Bottletoppers A volunteer trip to Uganda gave Cameron the inspiration he needed to mix business with giving back, and the Bottletop Foundation was born. Launched in 2002 by Cameron Saul and his father Roger (founder of British luxury fashion brand Mulberry), the first Bottletop campaign was a handbag collaboration with Mulberry made from recycled bottle tops in Africa and lined with Mulberry leather in Europe. The best-selling design was heralded as a sensation by the international fashion press, generating local employment in Uganda and raising vital funds for grass roots education projects across the continent.

Describe your company in one sentence? A sustainable luxury lifestyle brand empowering people and planet. What is the thing you are most proud of? There have been lots of exciting moments designing for the Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony and collaborating with designers including Narciso Rodriguez and Donna Karan but we are most proud of the impact of our work on the lives of the women and young people that we support through our operations and foundation. What has been your biggest challenge?

Bottletop’s co-director Oliver Wayman then discovered a local craft technique in Brazil that creates stunning silver chain mail bags. Using upcycled aluminium ring-pulls, held together by crotchet, Bottletop went on to develop a bestselling collection that generated a new wave of international publicity and demand that paved the way for their current own brand collection, which now supports artisans and their families across Brazil.

Building a scalable business model that blends commerce with philanthropy.

With the ambition to scale Bottletop to become the world’s leading sustainable luxury lifestyle brand, Cameron plans to “continue making looking good do good” by launching new collections in different parts of the world, as well as opening flagship stores in London and New York. There’s a lot to come!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever had?

Where do you see your company in five years? With physical stores in Europe, America, South America and Asia, a strong global online business and an active foundation raising major funds for our growing network of life changing health education projects.

Follow your passion.
