After conversations, sharing of questions and communications from staff, suppliers, customers and the wider support network a group of BECBC members determined the main priorities that we recommend an SME business owner focuses on. The outcome of these discussions was to prioritise planning and then implementing actions on the things that you can influence.
Lee Grears of Responsive NDT and Rachel Ritson of Grisdales Estate Agents, from different sectors serving the West Cumbria Industry and community shared their challenges and the vast amount of requests for information they were having from different stakeholder.
