What the budget really means for small business owners and the self-employed.

Join Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and guests as we deconstruct the Budget – translating what that means for you in reality as a small business owner or self-employed person. There will also be plenty of time to network over lunch.

At this event, you'll get to hear FSB's reaction to the Budget, hot off the press, and pose questions of our panel hosted by FSB Regional Chair, David Bell:

  • Matt Jaffa, Senior External Affairs Manager at FSB
  • Henry Bennett, Wokendon Wealth Management
  • Brendon Howlett, Wood & Disney Chartered Accountants
  • Gavin Newman, Sterling Washroom Services
  • Maria Antoniou, Chocolate Moments and creator of ‘Bar of Crisps’, as seen on Dragon’s Den

Member tickets for this event are £8 and non-member tickets are £10. The price includes a buffet of: teas, coffees, juice, sandwiches, wraps, (a mix of vegetarian/non vegetarian), savoury bites, a fruit basket, and a cake selection.
