Region’s leading businessman to speak at BusinessDesk event
One of the region’s most successful businessmen will be the very special guest at an event organised by TheBusinessDesk.com.
Steve Oliver launched MusicMagpie from his garage in Stockport just over ten years ago and it has since grown into one of the biggest online retailers in the country.
Steve will be speaking at an executive lunch in Manchester city centre later this month.
His business, which is still based in Hazel Grove, now employs 1,000 people, exports to 140 countries and has an annual turnover of £100m.
Steve, who has always remained true to his North West roots, describes himself as an entrepreneur who has had to learn the internet.
He will be talking to the audience about his path to success and how he has built one of the region’s fastest growing firms.
Steve who worked in the music industry for many years, got the idea for MusicMagpie site after realising there was a huge demand for hard to find novels and music.
He decided to launch a ‘modern stock exchange’ which could be used for people looking for collectible music, DVDs, books and everyday technology.
Steve will be giving the audience an insight into his business as well as his love of Manchester City at what should prove to be an interesting and entertaining event.
