Mike Matthews MBE, Managing Director of Nifco and Andrew Hebden, Deputy Agent of the Bank of England North East Region will both give their unique perspectives on business at a double bill event for Service Network members and non-members on 20 September 2017 at Ramside Hall, Durham.
Mike Matthews has taken Nifco from being a loss making automotive company to one which employs more than 650 people with a £71m turnover. Mike will talk through the challenges and highlights of his experience with Nifco and his thoughts on the wider business sector, gained through his close relationships with local businesses as past president of the North East of England Chamber of Commerce.
Andrew Hebden, Deputy Agent of the Bank of England, is in touch with the performance of regional businesses and trends in each sector. His expertise in understanding and forecasting the financial outlook for businesses will make for an enlightening talk.
