FEO Director Jonathan Elvidge inspires Tech Businesses

Jonathan talked about how he left his secure job and with no retail or business experience opened a shop called The Gadget Shop in Hull.

It went on over a period of 10 years to become an award winning, market leading brand with more than 40 shops across the UK, and then it all went wrong.

Jonathan recalled the rollercoaster business adventure and subsequent rise of RED5 ‘the ultimate gadget shop’, and explored lessons learnt along the way and the mindset that an Entrepreneur needs to be able to deal with setbacks as well as successes.

Following Jonathan’s talk, there was an opportunity for delegates to ask questions.
