Looking for marketing answers

Estimated reading time: 1 min

The uncertainty and change facing us is a new challenge.  I have been doing short mini videos through the lockdown.  They were designed to give fast tips for action.

Now I’m hosting longer form discussions with a locals who are smart thinkers and smart do-ers.

I want to know what the Government is doing for SMEs.  And so I booked two interviews.  One with a business owner and one with a member of the Small Business Council working with MBIE.  What they told me shows how far we have to go and the sort of resources YOU can expect to get in the form of support for your business future.
