We are proud to be sponsoring a special business lunch in support of The SMA Trust and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. The event, which will be attended by professionals from across the region’s business community will take place at Manchester’s Principal Hotel on Friday 29 June.

The business lunch, hosted by award winning comedian Alun Cochrane, will see AO.com founder John Roberts discuss his business success during an interview with Tesco CEO Matt Davies.

John founded the electrical retailer AO.com in 2000 following a £1 bet with his friend that he couldn’t change the face of the white goods market. Twenty years later, with the industry changed, it has proven to be a valuable bet.

His ‘AO Way’ ethos has seen him recognised for his leadership, coming second in the Sunday Times’ most inspirational leaders and ranked in the top 10 CEOs to work for by Glassdoor.

The event, which is set to raise funds for two exceptional charities, promises to be a real highlight on the region’s business calendar.
