This morning, I attended a business breakfast roundtable discussion which was sponsored by Barclays Bank. The aim of the breakfast was for local small businesses to introduce themselves and discuss their biggest opportunities and challenges. I then responded to each business individually, and took questions on the budget, planning regulations, business rates, HMRC and Brexit.
The event was a valuable opportunity to engage with a wide-range of thriving local businesses from Designers Hairdressers in Walton to telecommunications firm XE2 from Thames Ditton.
My thanks to Danny Reardon from Barclays for organising the event and to Walton Working Men’s Club for hosting us.
