On Monday 16th of April the Devon area of the FSB held the first Policy focus evening. This was open to 25 members and was fully booked a couple of weeks before the event. The first one was on access to finance and we had four brilliant speakers all talking about different finance issues.
They were, Barclays Bank, The Post Office, Crowdcube and Peer to Peer lending. The evening started with a buffet and then all the speakers spoke before a question time session. By the time we got to questions everyone had something to say either about how the way we access money is changing to how the high street will look in 10 years time.
