Stability is key, with certain policies to remain in place were the fundamental messages from last week's lively seminar held at Foot Anstey's Exeter office, in conjunction with Chartered Accountants Francis Clark and guest speaker the CBI's Director of Campaigns and Governance, Andy Bagnall.
The full house heard the CBI Director share his thoughts for the future to a business audience, followed by a busy interactive Q&A session. Topics and discussions were wide and varied covering skills shortages, planning, construction and education.
With the general election only a few months away its outcome is too close to call. The event gave Exeter businesses the unique opportunity to have access to the CBI, the voice for business.
