Sir Terry Leahy, Every Little Helps: Tesco's CEO talks business
If you're interested in business Sir Terry Leahy needs little introduction. Under his leadership Tesco's turnover has quadrupled from £16 billion to an anticipated £64 billion, profits have increased by six times from around £532 million when he started to an estimated £3.2 billion this year (2010), and earnings per share have increased by more than three and a half times. So what makes Sir Terry tick? One thousand people poured into the Odeon Leicester Square for this London Business Forum event to find out. Leahy is widely regarded as a low key leader but it is clear that he eats, sleeps, lives and breathes Tesco, which he joined after graduating from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in 1977.
