FSB London was invited to the first of four ‘South London LEAP Round Table Discussion’ events organised in conjunction with the South London Partnership on 8th July 2019 – led by LEAP Board Members: Angus Knowles-Cutler (Co-Deputy Chair and Business Member) and Dr Celia Caulcott (Business Member)
LEAP (London Economic Action Partnership) is the local enterprise partnership (LEP) for London, one of 38 LEPs across England.
The event agenda discussed the current LEAP delivery programme, sub-regional (South London) partnership priorities and the London’s Local Industrial Strategy.
Small businesses were highlighted by all stakeholders around the table as most important in delivering good growth across South London.
