Sir Malcolm Walker will be guest speaker at Moreton Hall's Business Lunch
It's been almost 50 years since young entrepeneur Malcolm Walker set up a frozen food shop in the Shropshire town of Oswestry, which he called Iceland.
He was working at Woolworths at the time and got sacked from his managerial role there when they discovered his sideline business.
Over the years, Iceland has become a national enterprise and now has nearly 1,000 stores across the UK, Ireland and Czech Republic, employing more than 24,000 people.
And on 22nd March, entrepeneurs of the future will hear him speak at Moreton Hall's Business Lunch.
Moreton Hall – a Shropshire school for girls – takes business very seriously, having its own firm Moreton Enterprises. Beginning more than 30 years ago when students took over management of the nearby Gobowen railway station booking office, the enterprise has developed into a shopping mall with numerous shops and service businesses.
