The best in the North-West

Nikki Bedi brings us the latest VOOM Podcast from Virgin Media Business from the city of the moment – Manchester. It’s semi-finals day at VOOM 2018 and 80 of th UK’s hottest businesses and start-ups are getting ready to pitch for a share of £1m in prizes.  

Surrounded by entrepreneurs, Nikki takes advantage of the new setting and is joined by some of the best in the North-West. Enter Rachel Clacher, co-founder of office-outsourcing pioneers, Moneypenny and Naomi Timperley, co-founder of Tech North Avocates, an initiative set up to champion digital businesses in the region.

The three talk all things digital with a focus on the talent that’s pouring out of the North-West at a steady rate. From tech start-ups to the people behind the scenes who are disrupting the industry and making themselves heard through collaboration, problem solving and agile working – to name a few.

We also hear from two of this year’s VOOM partners, Mark Brant, UK Managing Director of Paypal, and Suw Charman-Anderson from Ada Lovelace Day, who give us their top tips on how to grow a business internationally. Sound advi ce.
