But then a desire to work for himself and to improve his position led him into property development. The miner’s son has since become one of the most renowned and successful business people the region has ever seen – delivering American-style living and shopping to the North East, and helping to bring a golden era to the football club he supported as a boy. Sir John Hall discusses his incredible journey and reflects on the lessons that have inspired him over the years.
