Today I visited Jan Mughan and Denise Smith of the South Cambridgeshire Business Group. They are a networking association which aim to keep businesses in touch with our MPs, Andrew Lansley and Jim Paice!
I had attended one of their breakfast meetings just after Gordon Brown had decided NOT to go to the country. We discussed issues with Andrew Lansley that had an impact on our businesses, from the perennial frustration with the A14, the success of manufacturing in Huntingdonshire and the effects of superbugs in our health system.
The thing that impressed me most was, that our MPs were willing to listen and discuss some of the issues that we as businessmen felt were having an impact on our being able to make South Cambridgeshire a more successful region.
The next breakfast that I hope to attend is on the 9th of November at Bourn Hall Clinic where Alan Barrell will be speaking on the hot topic of Business Deveopment in India and China and its effect on Business in Europe which is very pertinent to the international side of my business. Look forward to seeing you there!
