“I was one of a number of people involved in setting up Business Springboard as I wanted to ensure I played my part in shaping the future of the City business community. It seemed to me that there were far more opportunities out there than most people were aware of. As a group, we try to join the dots and make it easier for people to understand what’s on our door step, to meet up with new people and for new deals to be done. I currently sit as the Vice-Chair and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable role.”
