SME Growth Accelerator Clinic

This past Friday I had the privilege of photographing the SME Growth Accelerator Clinic in the offices of PayPal in Richmond.  Rarely have I attended a workshop as enjoyable and worthwhile: its aim to help the vital SME sector address the challenges that hinder their growth.  The importance of this segment of the supply side of the economy was underscored by the presence and speeches by Vince Cable and Zac Goldsmith.  Our local mayor, Meena Bond showed her support as well.  I found particularly vital and interesting the talk about the importance and opportunity of sustainable business practices and the unintended consequences of changes in planning regulations to increase the housing stock.  Many congratulations to Helen Roberts of CGP for a great event.
