A NETWORK EVENT FOR KEY ENTREPRENEURS
K-Club Manchester meets regularly and brings together key entrepreneurs giving them the opportunity to meet fellow entrepreneurs and local professionals.
The speakers are:
Mark Brocklehurst - MD of Sharples Group
"Between the devil and the deep blue sea"
Bolton born Mark has combined a successful career in business with service to both his country and community. Ex-Navy man Mark is a regular attendee of K-Club and the Managing Director of Warrington-based Sharples Group Ltd who are a well established Managed Print Specialist.
Away from work Mark’s enthusiasm for adventure and fundraising has seen him complete challenge after challenge to raise in excess of £400,000 in support of local charities and community groups.
Mark will give us a “warts n all” tale of four men in a leaky boat through his eyes, as their skipper. Hear how four non-rowers tackled the world’s toughest rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of winter. You will see how a gruelling “two on, two off” rowing pattern, extreme pain, mental breakdown and capsizing pushed them to their limits.
