Event description

Description

Join us for an inspiring morning with entrepreneur, philanthropist and founder of Oldham based Holroyd Meek, Bill Holroyd.

Come along and hear more about Bill’s varied career from Hotel Management and working for Trusthouse Forte’s supply division to setting up his own foodservice distribution company, Holroyd Meek. By 1994 Bill had grown the comapny to £190m turnover serving over 7,000 restaurants across the UK which he eventually sold to Booker in 1995 and started his own investment company.

Between 1995 and 2015 Bill has invested in over 25 start-up and second stage companies. Major successes have included Millies Cookies, Positive Solutions, and AO World.

In 2008 Bill set up OnSide Youth Zones, a charity providing safe and inspiring, state-of-the-art facilities for young people in their leisure time. Seven Youth Zones are now completed with a further fourteen in process. At present over 50,000 young people are regular users of the Youth Zones. In 2013 Bill was awarded the CBE; in 2015 he was the High Sheriff for Cheshire and awarded a Beacon Fellowship for Philanthropy.

This event is a must attend for:

  • Business owners and leaders

  • Senior Managers

  • Entrepreneurs

  • Student

As a charity we work tirelessly to raise much needed funds to help us to continue to deliver activities and support services for our members. We would be very grateful if you would consider making a small donation of £5 to help cover the cost of your breakfast.
