It’s because of this it was so important for us to get involved with The Big House programme. It’s a platform which creates a melting pot of different expertise and knowledge-sharing which we can contribute to and help the next generation of local businesses to grow, develop and share in the incredible opportunities for success that are out there. We’re all looking forward to an exciting couple of months.”
