I have recently joined the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
In these stressful times, it is important to maintain as positive an outlook on maintaining a constructive overview for our businesses going forward. This past week I have had six ‘digital meetings’, by FaceTime & Zoom, some with folk I’ve never met, where the positivity resembled the old British bulldog fighting spirit. Gresham Street Partners is very much open for business.
I have recently joined the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) who is a non-profit organisation offering members small business advice, financial expertise, support and are a powerful voice in the UK government.
The FSB has had a huge influence on making change and influencing policy – recently securing a £940 million reduction in business rates for small firms; a freeze on the VAT threshold as well as on fuel duty. The FSB has also persuaded the Government to adopt a reform package to stop late payments to small businesses. Have a look at their website. They will have much to offer us all in the months ahead…..

As a member, you can attend some amazing networking events; have a look at this video of my own induction with Membership Secretary Piyush at the recent FSB event in Harrow.
