'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.'

Conference 2014 was a very special event for the FSB. We celebrated our 40th anniversary at Manchester Central with a packed business programme, seminars throughout both days, social events on Friday and Saturday evening and keynote speakers.
Conference opened with a celebrating the first 40 years of the FSB, followed by the FSB National Chairman delivering the opening address. The National Chairman gave a stirring opening address to the conference by saying "we are united and professional - and together we are at our strongest." The National Chairman spoke with pride and reminded members of the great strides that have been made in making sure the voice of small businesses is heard and listened to by the powers-that-be at every level.
The FSB National Chairman took to the stage with four young entrepreneurs to formally launch FSB Next Generation. Four FSB members were introduced who were heavily involved with Next Gen, Kate Hayes, Alyssa Smith, Ben Towers and Anisha Hanrod and their outstanding achievements in business were highlighted. The National Chairman asserted, "Next Generation is mission critical for the future of the FSB." Kate gave a call to action to FSB members to support young business owners through the Next Generation programme, by sharing their experiences of running a business with young people and providing valuable input into the development of the Next Generation programme. Kate said, "We really need the help of FSB members. Remember, you all started out as self-employed people and we would really love your input."

Mike was joined by Simon Danczuk MP, Councillor Sue Derbyshire, the leader of Stockport Council and John Ashcroft, Chief Executive of Pro-Manchester and the Chief Economist for the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
