We'd also like to thank Damon Parker of Harcus Sinclair http://www.harcus-sinclair.co.uk/ Mark Humphries of Humphries Kerstetter http://www.humphrieskerstetter.com/ and James Haywood of RGL Management http://suerbs.com/ for being on our first panel and for answering our members questions. Some of the answers were quite eye opening and not least insight into how banks legal teams look at litigation against SMEs. And of course we want to thank the members of our own panel, Steve, Andy, Peter, Jon, Ray and Paul for their brilliant support. I never fail to be amazed at their collective knowledge on banking issues!
As yesterdays meeting proved, the legacy issues so many SME owners are still trying to resolve, are not going away and no one is giving up. It's all very well the senior management of RBS insisting they plan to re-create a trust worthy bank but this cartoon (sent by one of our members) says it all!
Sadly, the one picture we're missing is of our Chairman extraordinaire, Nick Gould, in his totally exclusive SME Alliance cap – which the Turner girls had made especially for him!
All our members are encouraged to contribute to the SME Alliance weekly blog.
