Coffee Morning: ‘A Business Built in China’ with Ivor Seddon

Circle Sq. Fortnightly Virtual Coffee Morning

Join us every other Thursday at 11am via Zoom. Everybody is welcome. Join the conversation. 

On Thursday 11th February, Ivor Seddon, founder, Speedy Products, joins us to tell his story of building a business in China. Ivor started his working life on a market stall in Bolton and went onto become a successful international trader with his own factory in China. Today, his company, co-located in Salford and Suzhou, ships 300,000 homeware products a week all over the world.  Ivor will describe his experiences of doing business in China – from acquiring his manufacturing facility to protecting IP and managing his workforce. He will give a different point of view on the common myths associated with Chinese quality control standards, environmental record and labour laws to shed light on the opportunities that abound when working in one of the world’s manufacturing superpowers.
