After being successfully elected into the Area Leader post from January 1st 2019 (along with Clare Elsby), Leicestershire-based Jenny Cross shares what motivates her and what her key strengths and priorities are.
With 18+ years working with businesses to help growth through strategic marketing I am delighted to have the opportunity to now support SME’s in a fresh avenue.
Cross Productions has been established for 6 years and specialises in marketing strategy and growth from consultancy to implementation of digital, print and event management.
Having been elected as Area Lead for our Area of the FSB I see this as a great opportunity to voice small business opinions and have a positive impact in government.
Making a difference to business policy decision making, a key priority is to engage with businesses ensuring that our community of business owners are able to get involved and have their voice heard.
I am looking forward to help lead with the FSB’s local and grass roots lobbying activities and will use my experience in event management to work alongside the FSB to establish a business networking group targeted specifically at SME’s giving them a safe and inviting environment to share experiences and thoughts around current business issues.
As an active member of the Leicestershire Business Community I have the advantage of understanding and seeing first hand numerous issued business owners are faced with. I plan to stay in the heart of our business community and champion those independent businesses who make up 99% of the private business sector.
Outside of work I have 3 young children who keep me grounded and in touch with the needs of our next generation – never a dull moment!
