In this webinar covering the Coast to Capital area FSB aims to provide an opportunity for you to hear from a panel of local experts to help you navigate the path to business recovery as we ease out of lockdown.

Event details

Hosted by local member Simon Palmer, FSB aim to provide an opportunity for you to hear from a panel of expert guests on the issues of help and support made available to SMEs as they ease their way out of lockdown restrictions. Are Government support packages sufficient? Is the Coast to Capital LEP providing sufficient help and support? Join us to have your say: what are your thoughts as a local small business?

This panel includes:

  • Henry Smith MP for Crawley
  • Julie Kapsalis, Chair of Coast to Capital LEP
  • Sarah Davies, Director of Orange Beach Bars, Brighton
  • Bobbie Warburton, Executive Services Gatwick Ltd

With all the uncertainties of recent times, some take the view that it's impossible to plan for the future as the future is such an unknown. However, as the old adage goes: 'Fail to prepare, prepare to fail'. There are many variables that could affect your future success, that fact alone makes it all the more important for you to act now - taking the steps that are under your control, that you can implement now and that will put you and your business in the best possible place on the Road to Recovery. There are certainly challenges ahead, but there are also opportunities.

When you register to attend please submit your questions for these panellists in advance.
