Jonathan gives it to us 'Straight' at summer Networking Event


On Monday 20th June, our special guest speaker was Jonathan Straight, award-winning entrepreneur, philanthropist, and founder of Straight PLC which he built from scratch and went on to sell in 2014 for over £11 million.
The event took place at the iconic ‘Rose Bowl’ building of Leeds Beckett University Business School, the first time that Yorkshire Managers have used this venue.
Jonathan gave a talk about his life and how he developed his waste and recycling container business into a multi-million pound company, with some fascinating insights into the mistakes he made along the way and what he learnt from them.
He also told us about what he is doing with his time, now that he no longer runs Straight PLC, such as philanthropy, TV presenting, and his passion for urban photography.
