Businessmen Euan Noble and Leigh Topping gave an insight into their success at the popular Brighouse Link event.

Rokt is one of the big business success stories in Brighouse which includes winning the prestigious Brighouse Echo Business of the Year award in 2011.

Euan and Leigh showed the group graphically how they had developed the iconic Sugden Flour Mill towers in Mill Royd Street into world class climbing facilities which includes the highest climbing wall in Yorkshire.

It has been two years since the duo received planning permission to develop the mill and in that time they have gone from none to 20,000 members.

They also told members at the meeting held at Prego’s some of the exciting future plans they have to further develop the business to the silos on the opposite side of the road.

The 50 businesses who attended were told about some of the community work carried out by Rokt including working with schools, people with disabilities, probation service and emergency services.

Brighouse Link is a group set up by Sleigh and Story to provide local businesses with training and networking opportunities. Peter Sleigh, a director of Sleigh and Story said: “We were delighted to have Rokt present to Brighouse Link. Having seen them develop and flourish it was really interesting to hear first hand the secret to their success.”

On May 1 the presenter will be NLP Practitioner Anton Teasdale presenting on ‘How to make a big noise as a one man band’.

On July 10 Andy McMenemy will present ‘Power of positivity and November 1 Baby Ballet founder Claire O’Connor will be presenting ‘The ups and downs of business development’.
