Vince Cable visits Clarke Nicklin

Dr Vince Cable MP recently met Stockport business leaders during a visit to the town.

26The event was organised and hosted at Clarke Nicklin Group's offices in Cheadle, the meeting was attended by a team of people including business secretary the Right Honourable Vince Cable, Hazel Grove MP and business minister Andrew Stunell, Cheadle MP Mark Hunter, Clarke Nicklin senior partners Andrew Baggott and Steve Humphries, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Stockport President Ben Poland and business representatives from other businesses around the region including Hughes Safety Showers, MAN Diesel, Jacobs Engineering, Stockport College and RBS Poynton.

The team worked through a Q&A session on the region's main business issues, with valuable input attained from Vince Cable and his views on business development and enterprise in the UK. One of the main topics of discussion was access to funding for SMEs and how this can be addressed at a Government level.

Andrew Baggott of Clarke Nicklin said: "It goes without saying that we were honoured to host this meeting. It was a pleasure to take part in an important business debate and to attain the opinions and views from Dr Cable and Mr Stunnell. Their insight into the Government's commitment to business was invaluable to us all."

Ben Poland, Hughes Safety Showers and MAN Diesel worked in conjunction to bring the meeting to Clarke Nicklin. Together they selected a team of participants who they felt would best reflect the breadth of business in the area.

Concluded Clarke Nicklin's Steve Humphries: "Its not every day that you're given such great insight into the Government's views on macro business issues and, as an organisation that prides itself on adding value and insight to our own clients, we'll undoubtedly gain a lot from the experience. It was also a pleasure to welcome Mr Cable to Cheadle!"
