“We need more and more people to create their own jobs…and to be entrepreneurial”

John Forkin in 2016 talking about entrepreneurship, Derby as the city that famously homes Rolls-Royce & BOMBARDIER but also as a city that thanks largely to the University of Derby have driven enormous growth for SMEs and entrepreneurial endeavours.

With MIPIM (http://mipim.com) just around the corner, its that time of year when Marketing Derby and other local businesses get to shine and promote what a great city Derby is and how much we have grown over the years.

It’s not just big business, not just the millions invested in new retail and entertainment in the city, but also the growth of SMEs that continues to surface, promote and enhance the city.

When we filmed this interview with John it was originally talking all about Global Entrepreneurship Week – something many of us are very passionate about. But the little gems and quotes John speaks in this interview shows the passion he, his team and the entire city really has for the place we work from and the place we call home.
