We're delighted to offer Forum members the rare chance to enjoy an entrepreneur-only dinner in the company of one of the North East's most successful entrepreneurs.
One of Sage’s founder members in 1981, Graham programmed the original Sage accounts software himself and was instrumental in the company’s success.
Under his leadership, Sage UK became the domestic market leader in accounts and payroll software, with almost one in three UK businesses using a Sage product by 2003.
Following his 'retirement', Graham established Technology Services Group Ltd (TSG) and has overseen it's growth to employ more than 500 staff out of 14 regional offices.
An ambassador of the Entrepreneurs' Forum, a serial entrepreneur with a diverse and successful portfolio of interests, Graham’s contribution to the North East has been acknowledged by the award of honorary doctorates, the freedom of the city of Newcastle and a CBE.
Outside of business, he has many passions in his life; his charity CHUF, horse racing and developing our venue for the evening, Close House, into one of the premier golf resorts in the north of England being just three.
We could go on, but instead why don't you join us for what is sure to be an inspirational evening in a fantastic setting.
