"It can be a lonely business running a small enterprise at the best of times, but the economic conditions add another layer of pressure and uncertainty," said Tim Walker, MD at Iconnyx. "We have built this community as a go-to for business leaders needing answers to questions. We hope SME Insights will provide the advice and contacts that individual businesses need to give them the confidence to grow and thrive."
