James Timpson to attend as after dinner speaker

We are proud to announce that James Timpson has agreed to be the after dinner speaker at the North East Cheshire Business Awards ceremony on the 19th November.

James Timpson is the Chief Executive of Timpson Limited and runs over 1400 shops doing everything from repairing your shoes, cutting a key and developing your photos!

James has recently been named the Prince’s Responsible Business Ambassador in the North West, which is run by the charity Business in the Community (BITC). He has made a significant commitment to supporting and employing ex-offenders within the Timpson business and states,

“It’s a huge honour to be appointed as the Prince’s Ambassador for Responsible Business. BITC has made real headway when it comes to helping ex-offenders get back into work, which drastically reduces the chances of reoffending.”

In 2011 he was awarded the OBE in recognition for his ‘Services to Training and Employment for Disadvantaged People’.
