“It is an asset for the Council to have the likes of B&E support available to SMEs, especially the personal service from the team members”. Meena Joshi - Aardra Systems Ltd

“The B&E team have always been so helpful with the support they provide, all team members are full of energy, kind and always informative. It motivates businesses to deal with the team and ask for help when needed when there's a great team in place. There should always be a team like this delivering business support.” Laurie Nichols – Laurie Fitness and Training
