As an Ambassador for the The Rural Business Awards, our illustrious leader Sacha Macey was recently invited by the Rural Business Group to attend a Roundtable at Number 10 Downing Street.
The Roundtable was hosted by Niamh Mulholland (Business Engagement Manager at the Prime Minister’s Office), and focussed on the challenges that rural businesses are currently facing, whilst also exploring thoughts and ideas about how we can address these challenges in order to have a real, sustainable impact on our rural communities – enabling us to not only survive but to thrive.
Anna Price Co-Founder of the Awards and Rural Business Group said:
“Our view is that successful rural communities are underpinned by successful rural enterprise in all its forms. We are delighted to be able to share some of our success with other hard working rural businesses and give them the opportunity to be heard at the heart of Westminster.”
We look forward to continued involvement with the group to help raise the profile of the rural economy and how it contributes to the UK’s prosperity.
As the discussion around the table proved, there is much to be done to remove roadblocks to success for people operating businesses of all sizes to level the playing field.
