We're excited to invite guest speaker John Hays to Newcastle University to discuss what it's like to set up a business in the North East.
John is founder and CEO at Hays Travel, the largest independent travel agent in the UK with more than 130 branches.
Starting off with a desk within his mother's store, John used exceptional customer service and hard work to make over £800m turnover last year and Hays Travel has been voted one of the Top 100 Companies to Work For in the UK by the Sunday Times.
John has been recognised with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Agent Achievement Awards in 2008, an Outstanding Achievement Award at the Globes in 2009 and a place in the British Travel Industry Hall of Fame in 2010.
The speaking session starts at 7pm at BSTC B.32 If you don't know where the venue is, we will meet you outside NUSU at 6.45pm.
