Rebecca interviewed Smith and Williamson partner, Tim Sloggett and David Stone, CEO of Prompt Strategies Business Turnaround and Transformation specialists 

The partnership on this was helpful for both Tim and David and it showcased their expertise. Participants sent messages saying it was an excellent and engaging format. There was practically no drop out rate.

The session was helpful for businesses facing scenarios caused by the Pandemic such as;

  • Concerns that that they may not be able to repay debts;
  • A funding request rejected by the Bank;
  • An eroding cash position;
  • Reliance on a single plan or event to secure their future;
  • Considering whether to close their business.

Mike and the Convicts – supporting work to rehabilitate convicts for the workplace

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With the far too clever economist and city asset manager, Mike Denham. At the start of my career, I worked with convicts and have strong views on their treatment and rehabilitation in the work place. We were both impressed by Timpson’s policy to support the Prison Service’s Release on Temporary Licence scheme and to help ex-convicts work as soon as they leave prison. Fantastic initiative and bloody good job Timpsons!
