Every now and then we like to showcase some great North East companies, and let them tell you their story. And this month, as well as hearing from them in person, it will be broadcast live on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

So on the 9th March at RTC in Sunderland, Ian Farrar of Far North will be in conversation with Shaun Oakes, CEO of iEvo.

Ian has become something of a sensation on iTunes with his Industry Angel podcast. Over the last couple of years he’s interviewed business leaders, entrepreneurs, social influencers and marketing gurus, and has listeners in more than 100 countries. As well as being your host for the morning, Ian will be giving some insights into how he got started in broadcasting, the equipment he uses and the benefits he’s seen for his business.

iEvo was one of the first companies that Design Network North supported, and we’ve been working with Shaun and his team since 2008, helping them grow their design capability, their product range and their client base. Shaun will be talking with Ian about the origins of the company, and the journey they’ve been on to become one of the technology leaders in the field of biometric control systems.

So join us to hear from two great North East businesses, as we broadcast live around the world.

Design Network North is part of RTC’s Designing Better Business programme – launched in 2016 - which provides support to North East businesses looking to use innovation and design to develop world-leading products.
