Share your ideas on Northern growth

Northern Futures is a new initiative from the Deputy Prime Minister. The question we’re trying to answer is:

How do we build on the strengths in the North to create an economic core in the heart of the region that can compete with the biggest cities in the world?

We’ve created this website so you can join the debate. All you need to do is register and you’ll immediately be able to submit your ideas and comment on those of others.

We’ll be holding an event in November where we’ll showcase the best ideas and discuss how they can be pulled together into a coherent plan. If you want your idea to be considered at the event you need to post it on one of the two discussion threads below by 17th October.

You can find out more about the project here.

Do you agree that we should build up an area of the North as a global economic hub? Which city or group of cities is best placed to compete on the world stage?

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
