Our first live streamed Tech Talks

Tech Talks with Paul Slater, on Tuesday 15 November 2017, was the first live streamed event in our series, which focus on the people behind some of the most successful businesses in the area.

Paul's business journey

When it comes to business, Paul has seen and done it all. Well, almost... back in 2002, he set up creative design agency Urban River Creative swiftly moving with the digital age to offer clients innovative products and services to keep them at the top of their game.

Paul chatted with South Tyneside's very own Ian Farrar as they discuss his early days in business and how he was very much self-taught in many aspects of business. Paul went on to successfully raise funding to develop his Gym Plan app and bring it to market - but it has not been without it's challenges!

His breadth of experience in his own companies, and the support he received from mentors has helped Paul grow into the tech savvy entrepreneur who undoubtedly still has a lot to bring to the digital world.
