We also speak to the North’s leading businesswomen on their thoughts on progress for women in the industry and what Breaking the Bias means to them.  The views from our female leaders, give us valuable insight into the importance of gender equality in business and the advice they would give to other female entrepreneurs.

Also, in this edition read how Cheshire-based Frank Olsen Furniture, has reached multi-million-pound turnover since its establishment in 2016.

The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund project is supported financially by the European Union using funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the European Investment Bank.
