Since 2013 Business Connect Magazine has been bringing many different business communities together through our free printed and electronic editions, and our intention behind this is to provide a platform to connect businesses across sectors and regions.

We are very proud to feature an ongoing set of video interviews, the intention being to inspire our regional business community to engage collectively, bringing together business people, entrepreneurs and start-ups.

Partnering with Geeky Group – run by Manchester-based Phil Crowshaw – our content consists of an ever-growing range of video material, all designed to inform and inspire everyone in business.

We chose Phil and Geeky Group as our partner in this venture due to their experience in producing and distributing a wide range of online video and audio content. They were responsible for starting the world’s first business TV channel in 2003, and the first online Multi Media magazine linked to Twitter, Tweeting Times. Phil has conducted over 400 video interviews with people from entertainment, politics, sport and of course, business.
