Business owners in the South had a rare opportunity to hear one of the UK's leading commentators talk about how the current economic situation impacts on the outlook for their business.
HSBC South Hampshire Commercial Centre and Rothmans, one of the region's largest accountancy firms, held a joint seminar and networking event at the Solent Holiday Inn, Fareham where Dennis Turner, Chief Economist for HSBC delivered a presentation entitled 'Light At the End of the Tunnel?'.
Dennis heads a team advising the financial community on economic trends and is an influential advisor within UK government.
“The seminar we held last year was very well attended and we were delighted to be able to offer this service again,” says Rothmans partner, Richard Hutchinson.
“Giving business owners an impartial assessment of the issues that most concern them in the current business environment will help inform their decision-making processes going forward.”
Simon Smith, Area Commercial Director for HSBC in Solent says, “With significant uncertainty in the markets at the moment and an eagerly awaited solution to the eurozone, the timing of this event could not have been better.
“Dennis, as always, put things into perspective and delivered a very entertaining and informative presentation.”
