Small Business Initiative Update

Small Business Initiative Update

Note from Corinne Smith:

Around 60% of ATC members are small businesses, and in 2019 much of ATC’s focus will be on supporting and producing content tailored for SME LSPs through our new Small Business Initiative.

The Small Business Initiative was set up to provide support and training, keeping it relevant to LSPs working to tighter budgets and with fewer staff numbers, and who as a result may not have significant time to dedicate to each and every area of business at all times.

We are very much looking forward to kicking off our webinar series, which starts this month on Wednesday 23 January, and networking events, and hope to see you there. We would also welcome any further suggestions or ideas from you as our members as to what further areas you would like support in or how to improve how we deliver that to you.
