Are you ready for what 2015 has in store?


The new issue of Shropshire Business Today will be hitting the streets in the next few days – and the theme is ‘Making Plans’.

We’re not talking about new year’s resolutions, but the sort of strategies which companies will need to take on what is expected to be a fascinating and challenging general election year.

sbt22 frontOne person who knows about change more than most is Gill Hamer. She’s our cover story this issue, and is about to step into her new role as director of the Marches LEP.

Here, she chats to Shropshire Business Today editor Carl Jones to give a flavour of her plans for the year – there’s much more on this interview in our new issue, plus much, much more.

We also drop in at Telford Business Partnership to hear what the local Bank of England agent has to say about the economy, catch up with successful exporters, and bring you six pages of social pictures.

Plus, Shropshire Chamber of Commerce president Keith Winter steps into our ‘Five Minutes With…’ hotseat to answer our questions. And as ever in this feature, there are one or two surprises.

Listen to Carl’s interview with Gill Hamer below.
