Agilia CEO, Amar Qureshi, was invited to No.10 Downing Street this morning to provide thought leadership and insight at a small roundtable alongside select industry leaders from Small to Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs).
In a wide-ranging discussion with 15 other SME attendees, Amar and the group of SME leaders engaged the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy on a breadth of topics. Amar commented on how entrepreneurship is not only good for the economy, but small businesses can focus much more on how business is conducted, and that can be a force for good across society as whole.
“The voice of small business is being heard, right at the heart of government. Agilia specialise in major projects which have the power to inspire current and future generations. Small businesses across the UK inspire change by having a natural capacity to be engines of good growth – growth that is sustainable, fuelled by diversity of thought and perspective and connected with communities.
I welcomed the opportunity to talk to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Business Environment and Industrial Strategy, and to have had the opportunity to promote the benefits small businesses provide to the economy.”
