A series of events for those in accountancy and finance kicks off tonight with a ‘pie and pint’ evening with ‘Bank of Dave’ founder Dave Fishwick.
He reaveals all at a business leaders’ forum being held at St Katharine’s Docks, when he explains what made him take on seemingly insurmountable odds.
Dave is guest of Reed Finance recruitment consultancy, which specialises in senior and executive-level financial recruitment, to tell his real-life ‘David and Goliath’ story.
The former van and minibus dealer recalls how he believed he could do better than local banks.
The banking authorities told him it was impossible—even criminal.
But Dave pressed on and set up Burnley Savings and Loans. He found himself a national celebrity, starring in Channel 4’s ‘Bank of Dave’ documentary.
