Issue - September 2014

In this edition we speak to Michael Oliver, the self-made man who has went from job interview rejection to creating a £600m fortune. He’s part of our exclusive Rich List, detailing the region’s 100 wealthiest individuals and families. There is also a special feature on the future of the North, which you can read here online.
