Many UK business owners are so involved in running their business, that planning takes a back seat.

8% spend 10% or less of their working week on strategic business planning.  Nearly one third  only find time to plan during evenings and weekends.  Does that sound like you?  If it does, be worried.  A business without a strategic plan for the future can only stagnate.  Read our latest blog and measure where your business is today by taking our online business fitness test.  Make 2018 the year your business grows faster than ever before.  Start by booking a free 45 minute consultation with Mike Lloyd who can help ensure you really do control your business future.

Working in partnership with Swindon Foodbank, the team here at Haines Watts Swindon are asking each other, their clients, visitors and any nearby business people or residents to drop in and donate until Wednesday 20 December.  Boxes in our Reception are ready for anyone to drop their donations in.

This initiative is also being taken on by other Haines Watts offices across the country for their own communities as, according to the Trussell Trust, more than 13 million people in the UK now live below the poverty line.

Anyone wishing to can leave donations at the Haines Watts office in old Station House, Station approach, Newport Street, Swindon, SN1 3DU during office hours up to and including Wednesday 20th December.  Green and red boxes will be in the reception areas to receive any donations.  Parking is available.
