Why I’m Supporting #MicroBizMattersDay
Mr Maurice Sedwell started a small tailor shop on Fleet St and in 1963 moved to larger premises on Savile Row. Just over 10 years later I joined the company as an apprentice, as understudy to Mr Sedwell, doing many tasks that I resented at the time. But it turned out that they were invaluable tasks because what I was actually doing was learning to run a business. Small businesses are like sleeping giants, but in order to wake that giant we need support – to grow, with training, with exports, with business plans. #MicroBizMatters because it’s offering small businesses the right tools and support for people running small businesses to develop.
