Level Up is a platform hosted by The Northern Echo where businesses across the North can unite, celebrate their achievements and be a powerful single voice spotlighting the perfect region for investment and Government focus.

Find all our Level Up stories here

Our Business & Commercial Editor Mike Hughes tells inspiring stories every day about firms leading the way in their sectors and driving the reputation of the region nationally and globally, and they will get as wide an audience as possible across the Newsquest network and beyond.

Level Up also has to have a challenging voice, holding to account at every level those who stand in the way of a  collaborative and supportive Levelling Up strategy.

Tell your story and join key partners like the Tees Valley Combined Authority, transatlantic law firm Womble Bond Dickinson, Durham County Council, engineering giant Cummins and the North East England Chamber of Commerce in driving forward our Level Up campaign. By working together and speaking out we can change things for the better.
