Paul Drake of Sapere Software – Speaker June 3rd Wynyard Hall

“Describing himself as a custard cream (because you can dunk them loads and they hang on for dear life), Paul is a dedicated father, proud Teessider and fan of a proper cup of tea.

Starting his career knee deep in scampi entrails for a glamorous £4.50 an hour, Sapere Software’s Operations Director, Paul Drake really did start ‘from the bottom up’.

Now co-founder of his own business, Paul has had an interesting journey to get to where he is, moving from gutting fish to making cottage cheese, which was apparently the best job in the creamery.

Becoming a father at 18 is one of the things Paul credits for giving him the proverbial kick to become more qualified and pursue other opportunities. He began studying a degree in Computer Science at night school while still working at the cheese factory, and the rest is history!”

Join us to hear Paul tell us his story and answer your questions all over a great lunch with a group of interesting business professionals.
