Between May and June 2015 we hosted 14 regional events across the UK, with 1,200 small businesses registering to attend. We explored how small businesses are improving their management and leadership capabilities and how this plays a vital role in the transition from start-up to established business.

On 15th September 2015, we will be hosting four receptions across the UK – London, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to launch the final report. We will share all findings and policy recommendations through the report, showcase a new interactive heatmap for small businesses and business schools.
