In 1972, Sir Hugh Sykes bought his frst company – a near-bankrupt Sheffeld furnace. By the mid-1980s, his portfolio was valued at millions.

As Chair of the Sheffeld Development Corporation, he oversaw major regeneration of the city’s East End, which was left decimated by the decline in the steel industry.

Knighted for his extensive charity work, hear Sir Hugh talk candidly about his inspirational journey.
