Propeller Networking – The challenges and rewards of enterprise


Whether you are already an established entrepreneur or just thinking of starting your own business, Mike Peters is well worth a listen. Mike offers some advice based from his own experience of how to overcome the challenges of running an enterprise. What’s more, Mike offers advice on how to do so ethically and with decency.

Mike’s own journey started over 40 years ago when he started UPL (Universal Products Manufacturing Ltd.) – a manufacturer of pharmaceutical and personal care products. When he sold UPL in 2014 the company’s turnover had grown from £79,000 per annum to £40 million.

Mike Peters started UPL in 1976 with only four staff, in 2014 when he sold the company, he was responsible for 300 staff members. Alongside UPL, he was also the co-owner of Link Pharmaceuticals and a shareholder in Levity Crop Science. Across all areas, Mike is well prepared, competitive and fair. He is lauded for the enthusiasm he brings to business, receiving an MBE in 2013 for Services to Industry and Charity
