The results are in, and it is clear that GROWTH is back on the agenda for small to medium enterprises [SME’s] and the people behind them.
Thanks to everyone for participating in our recent ‘Business Insights’ survey. We were sensing that SME’s had started 2014 with increased optimism and our survey has shown that this is in fact the case.
It’s great to see that after a few years of playing it safe, the majority of SMEs [and the people behind them] are looking forward to a more optimistic year in 2014.
No surprises to see that growth is the number one focus for SMEs in 2014. Is this simply because of the increased business optimism? In our view it is also because the people behind SME’s have had enough of ‘sitting on their hands’ and are ready to have a go at reaching their potential.
Whether it’s growth in your business model, improvement in efficiency or growth in profits, it’s good to see SME’s [and the people behind them] back focusing on what they are good at.
To make sure you’re ready for growth, keep an eye out for our upcoming blog and newsletter on ‘being change ready’.
This one is always an interesting question for us. Other than a few cheeky requests for lunch, it is clear business owners are wanting practical advice, insights into industry trends and access to specialist advice on all business areas. A common theme was clearly ‘we don’t know what we don’t know’.
Once again, thank you so much to those who contributed - the feedback has been invaluable. businessDEPOT is looking forward to helping you tackle these issues head on in 2014.
