Event description

Description

Frank Rothwell recently appeared on Bear Grylls’ The Island, enduring torrential storms, gruelling conditions and the scrutiny of reality TV. Whilst definitely a unique experience, this was just the latest challenge undertaken by the Oldham businessman! We are delighted that Frank, a Founder Patron of Mahdlo Youth Zone and winner of Business Of The Year 2017*, is joining us as guest speaker at our July Business Breakfast.

Frank will be interviewed by Terry Flanagan about his experiences in his business life and how he set up his business empire from scratch without any money. He will take questions on this subject and also about his time on The Island with Bear Grylls.

Frank is Oldham born and bred, but has undertaken challenges all over the world - he has climbed Kilimanjaro, journeyed 32,000 miles around America and sailed the fabled Arctic North West passage on his yacht, UpChuck.

No stranger to hard graft, Frank has worked all his life, leaving school at 15 and founding Manchester Cabins at age 29. Now 66, Frank has years of experience building and growing his companies – named Oldham Business Man of the Year in 2015*, he will be sharing some of the challenges he has faced, how he has tackled them and what keeps him motivated.

This event will also be kicking off our Get Outdoors Summer of Excellence – a programme of outdoors adventure, exploration and skill-building activities for young people – and we can’t think of a better person to help launch it!

“You don’t want to be a coulda woulda shoulda type person. It’s much better to be a ‘when we did this’ person. Life is too short.” – Frank Rothwell

*Oldham Business Awards - winner Oldham Business Man of the Year 2015; Business of the Year (5<10M) 2017 - Bunkabin.
