|Date: 10/01/20||Venue: EKM Preston|
|Issue/campaign: Late Payment and issues facing micro businesses|
|Attendees: Tony Robinson, Small Business commissioner’s office, about 80-100 attendees
The day was made up of a variety of presentations and by a variety of speakers and a number of networking opportunities. I took a number of our guides from 2018 and 2019 as giveaways for attendees and as an encouragement for them to consider joining the Forum.
Tony and I recorded a video that has now been released on his website and can be seen here, this can be seen by small business owners, our members and attendees from the day.
I will attach the Micro Biz matters day welcome pack to this containing the full details of the day.
Tony and I discussed late payment and we decided to try and secure a Private Member’s Bill for #PayIn30Days. We will campaign and lobby through the Policy Mogul platform.
We have informed all the small business membership organisations of this decision and expect their support. I will take a lead in trying to get all the small business membership organisations to show a united front on this issue.
