Budding entrepreneurs could get some start-up advice from the man behind Red Or Dead at a Manchester event this week.
Start Up Day is set to host successful business people with real-life tips for the top – and the bill’s headed by Wayne Hemingway MBE.
The businessman, originally from Morecambe, co-founded one of the most recognisable fashion labels on the high street.
Since its sale in 1999, Hemingway has concentrated on aiming to make design sustainable and affordable.
The list of experts will be sharing their advice and inspiring stories at the free event running from 9.15am to 4pm at Manchester Central Library on Friday.
