Exporters recognised in New Year’s Honours list

With our daily digest of the Brexit headlines I do think that the consciousness of the British public is being awoken as to the importance of our manufacturing base and how much added value is created by it. I was thus really pleased to see recognition give to Heba Bevan of micro technology business, Uterberry and Stephen Edwards, Managing Director of engineering firm Flamgard for their contribution to our international trade and exports.

If you are looking to develop and grow your business, there are innumerable support and funding initiatives currently available; don’t hesitate to call or drop me a line for more information.

About Michael Carr

Specialising in Strategy, Systems and Organisational Design I've had a varied and rewarding career and been fortunate to work for some superb companies such as Courtaulds, Unipart International, Akzo Nobel and more recently Jaguar Landrover, all luminaries of a solid, disciplined and a conservative, though never lacking in innovation, approach to business management and development. Augmenting my career with studying for my MBA at Warwick in the early 90's has given me a balanced and I believe rich resource set to draw upon in my Consultancy Practice. My Clients have been good to me, tolerating my idiosyncrasies, giving me enough rope to go along the journey that I was taking them and hopefully in return I've been able to repay them by raising the bar and their business performance, giving them the results and achievements they were looking for. I really enjoy my work and love the challenge - isn't that what it's all about?
