In or Out debate at the Shard...Part 1

ShardI was down in London yesterday at the Shard……..I’d been invited by Sage to hear a debate about Europe.  Specifically how the in/out decision effects small business.

Sage debateThe setting for the debate was the rather magnificent Shard Building.  My children have a scant knowledge of London, but even they knew the Shard and were super-excited that their Mum was going somewhere more glamorous than usual!

There were probably about 100 people in the audience……most from the small business community.  It was lovely to mingle before the debate and get to chat to some folk.

Shard 2On the way down I reflected that I probably didn’t know that much about how ‘Brexit’ impacts small business……as in the rest of life so called Big Business tends to hog the agenda and media reporting rarely covers the myriad of small businesses in the UK.

I was really looking forward to hearing from the expert panel that Sage had pulled together.  It was a fascinating hour of lively discussion……..and it wouldn’t be fair to try and summarise it in one blog post, so I’ll post more tomorrow!
