Event description

Description

Ever heard the phrase 'it's grim up north'. Well whoever said that has clearly never been to Huddersfield! According to Rightmove, we are the 2nd happiest town in the UK.

Northern grit and determination have led to some superb accomplishments by Huddersfield and it's people including; Olympic medals, international fame on the silver screen and even a Prime Minister.

Huddersfield is a hotbed of entrepreneurial energy supplying glass for the London Eye’s capsules, weaving carpets for Buckingham Palace, creating the world’s first DNA impregnated cloth, and even building the world’s largest nodding dog!

Huddersfield produces heroes and we have invited a panel of people who have significantly contributed to putting us on the map. Our panel members are:

Siobhan Greene – Head of Television at Syco TV, and producer of some of the biggest shows on UK TV, X Factor, Stepping Out, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway to name a few.

Dean Hoyle- Huddersfield Town Chairman, alumni of Kirklees College, founder of the Card Factory, lauded entrepreneur with awards including Ernst & Young's 'North and Midlands Entrepreneur of the Year' in July 2009 and Chadwick Lawrence's 'Business Person of the Year' in November 2011 at the Huddersfield Examiner Business Awards. Now 100% owner of Huddersfield Town, Dean has been the fulcrum at Huddersfield Town as the Club has won many admirers in football circles for its forward-thinking initiatives for supporters and the wider community. Dean was the brainchild of the Town Foundation and has transformed the Terriers since becoming full-time Chairman. He made the decision to bring Head Coach David Wagner to the Club, which was instrumental in the Club achieving promotion to the Premier League for the first time.
