Over 50 business people from Hinckley and the surrounding area came together at the recent Info2Grow business growth event.

Local chartered accountants Stewart, Fletcher & Barrett (SFB), Lloyds Banking Group, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, LDJ Solicitors, the Hinckley BID and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) organised the event which took place on 16th October at the new multi million pound Hinckley Hub.

The theme of this first Info2Grow event in Hinckley was 'Overcoming the barriers to growth'. Delegates were treated to a panel of experts that included Paul Carvell (SFB), Alan Ison (Lloyds Bank SME Banking), Julie Price (FSB) and Ian Daniels (LDJ Solicitors).

More millionaires are made during challenging economic conditions, than at any other time. With this in mind, the panel of experts provided delegates with top tips on how they can avoid a downturn and embark on a journey of growth.

Shelley Lee, Director of SFB Hinckley and Chair of Hinckley Info2Grow said: "It was great to see so many Hinckley businesses attending Info2Grow. We hope they found the event useful and will be inspired to take positive action to help their business to grow."
