'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

The Emerald Group
Sarah's company, The Emerald Group are a technology consultancy based in Leamington providing support to businesses and organisations wanting to improve their operational processes.
The Emerald Group is a technology company supporting small to medium sized businesses to use technology to improve their operational processes and achieve their growth potential. We specialise in IT project management, IT infrastructure, IT Support, Cloud Services, and Mobile Communications.
My Co-Founder and I were working in IT & mobile technology companies respectively and saw a way to bring the two together better for small businesses, especially those with ambition to grow. We wanted to offer the highest level of tech support and flexibility for the SME market not just the big corporate companies.
Most of our growth has been through referral and then referral and then referral! Some of our customers are six or seven stage referrals now. We have also been recommended through the community work we do and we love to network!
We joined FSB almost as soon as we were registered as a business. The free legal advice attracted us initially and the support around taking our first office and hiring our first member of the team.
We have used the free legal advice a number of times and it has proved hugely useful. We also take advantage of the networking events and answering surveys etc. so that FSB can lobby on our behalf.
Yes. Very much enjoy the regional networking events and the local branch events.
I am a Governor at a local secondary school and I think Business & Education Engagement is crucial to address the skills gap for the future.
It is difficult when you are a busy small business owner to think five to ten years ahead but if we don’t have the skills we need for the growth of the future we will not move forward and achieve our potential.
I am working with local schools and businesses to offer different engagement options depending on the time business people have available.
We are always looking for new innovative ideas and technologies to support our customers. We are about to launch a global mobile data product which will significantly reduce costs for those businesses who travel abroad and need to stay connected.
Mobile data costs can easily get out of control and we want to help small businesses manage their costs. We are forming new partnerships and crucially always remain independent to ensure our customers are the ones who benefit from our knowledge and expertise.
Join FSB! Seek advice from people who have been there before you. Listen to the experience of others.
Learn as much by what not to do as what to do. Surround yourself with people who will support you especially those who are strong in the areas you are not. Finance, Legal, Marketing etc. You will have to do a lot yourself at the start but it’s worth a small investment if you can in people who have the skills you don’t have.
Stay strong and true to your values. Success will come from that often when you least expect it!
