International Womens Day Blog – Business West with Enterprise Europe Network Q&A with Founder Diane Douglas
Vigiles Group along with a selection of #SME leaders was invited by Emma Jones founder of Enterprise Nation – The UKs strongest voice for small business to No 10 Downing Street meet with Jimmy McLoughlin UK Government Policy advisor formally Head of External Relations IoD
The topic – If we were Chancellor for the day.
For me personally as the founder of Vigiles, aside from day to day economical challenges faced as a small business owner. Corporate Engagement with SME’s CSR and sustainability of support are vital.
It takes a whole community to educate a child, and the same could be said when starting a business.
Collaboration is priceless.
As leaders we could complain like ducks about many things or have the mind set of an eagle and apply ourselves to solving problems.
Three of the UKs governments greatest challenges are centred around supporting the elderly, obesity and climate change.
Spending time with inspirational business leaders can and does prompt action. Vigiles will now focus our own CSR policies in line with those highlighted yesterday.
SME’s are the backbone of the UK, and have tremendous global reach.
Imagine the positive impact achievable if every one of us 5.4 million SME’s engaged with CSR to make a difference to the lives of others as well as ourselves. #GEW17
