Today’s featured speaker is:
Banking on it: how to maximise your chances of securing bank lending
Formed in 1974, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) was and is the UK’s leading business organisation representing small and medium sized businesses. With more than 200,000 members, the FSB is a powerful lobbying organisation representing firms to national, local and devolved government. Last year, the FSB was lobbying the government to use some of the £500m Olympic underspend as a compensation fund for businesses suffering disruption.
Matthew Jaffa has spent seven years at the FSB. Currently, he is the chief London spokesperson and leads on London policy issues affecting small businesses, including economic policy. He also worked in the national policy team working on education and skills, and transport policy.
Prior to working at the FSB, Matthew worked in the Cabinet Office in the Better Regulation Executive looking at European Regulatory Impact Assessment and the Strategy Unit, where he was a researcher on various strategic projects.
Matthew Jaffa will be speaking at Real Business Funding, the free conference to illuminate the new, more plural funding environment for growing SMEs. Join us on March 15, 2013, at the British Library, and join the discussion on Twitter at #unleashingfinance.
