Small business community unites for Business Advice launch

While the setting wouldn’t be where you’d typically expect small businesses to assemble, Canary Wharf was the location for our launch party – where we unveiled our maiden Small Business Decision Makers list and heard from a host of brilliant speakers including some of our resident experts, exciting companies featured in our “On the up” section and Facebook’s Oliver Sewell.

Held at the base of KPMG Small Business Accounting, our headline sponsor, the event served as a thank you to our supporters and a chance for us to introduce the title to those who hadn’t come into contact with it yet.

For those who weren’t in attendance, we’ve pulled together some of the best images from the night for you to have a look at.
