The Faculty of Business, Law & Tourism presents it's Guest Speaker Programme with Howard McCain - 'Working class lad to successful entrepreneur.'
From a humble beginning as the son of a semi-skilled Engineer in Sunderland, Howard McCain started his career, in 1982,aged 16, as a Bank Clerk in South Shields working his way to Regional Manager and a Chartered Banking Qualification with Natwest.
In 1994 he left the Bank, unhappy with their aggressive sales culture and set out to follow his dream of "delighting clients' expectations and to financially secure their futures" to set up his own Financial Services Practice from scratch growing it organically and with clear client focus until March 2020 when he sold it as part of his longer term exit and retirement plans.
Today he continues within the same business as a self employed consultant - serving his long standing clients and helping grow the new Practice for the buyers. He is in the process of writing his first published book "How to set up and run a successful Financial Services Practice".
Join Howard on 19th January and follow this fascinating insight to hear his tourney from a rookie apprentice to Senior Manager, successful Entrepreneur and beyond with all of the ups and downs along the way.
