Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group


New member Joanne Tipper of Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group is hoping to organise in February is a round table discussion – ‘The state of the nation’. She writes " I’ve organised these in my previous role and been a great insight into each other’s business and proved successful with an open conversation about the economy, Do you think any of the members would be interested?

Ideally I’d like to have present a couple of representatives from Leonard Curtis – and look to invite a couple of accountants, perhaps one being a tax specialist, and another smaller practice, a solicitor (I think I have this sorted), a commercial valuer / estate agent, a IFA and a couple of banks and maybe an employer of a SME – are there any members that you think may consider this and be interested? I’ve pencilled in Wednesday 24th February 12noon – 1.30pm. It would be great if you could make a couple of recommendations and I could follow this up."

If any member is interested please make direct contact with Joanne at [email protected]
