Lord Young is leading a review into barriers holding back SME growth. The key areas the review will focus on are HR, finance, new markets, business planning, and subsequent issues around these that affect businesses as they grow.
The BCC will be responding to the call for evidence and we are keen to hear views from members on two issues in particular:
Whether women face any unique challenges in growing their businesses
Marketing using new communication technologies.
The latter seeks to establish whether or not smaller businesses are keeping up with developments in communication, such as social media, and if this is affecting their growth. The review is due to report in the autumn.
If you have any thoughts please email firstname.lastname@example.org and use the title Lord Young Review.
