On behalf of everyone at BankSearch, I would like to thank all those who attended our inaugural “Business Support – What Works?” conference on Friday 24th November 2017. 

The feedback was fantastic (thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our survey!) with the notable highlights including the broad range of interesting speakers, the opportunity to network and the unique nature of the event: bringing together such a spectrum of individuals and organisations whose main focus is to support SMEs and growing businesses and asking the question: what works?

We know that during the networking sessions many useful conversations were had, experiences were shared and new business relationships were formed and we can’t wait to announce some exciting news of our own in the New Year!

You can see some of our event highlights on our Facebook page.

It was only possible thanks to all those who attended and to our fantastic speakers who gave such interesting talks and presentations.  As promised, the PowerPoint presentations are now all available for you to revisit online.





A special thank you to our sponsor Alternative Business Funding.
