Observatory

11-observatoryWith our knowledge of the micro business and the overall small business sector, we are perfectly placed to carry out research for those organisations wishing to prepare for and work within that part of the economy. Our work has included research for public sector on the IT demands of micro business, and research for the organisations such as The Kent Foundation, a support agency for young people starting in business.

We have also included, for interest, a piece of research work carried out by colleagues in the FSB in Scotland, as parts of that are appropriate to us in the south.

If you have a requirement for original research please call us on 0300 030 9660 or email observatory@cmbcic.co.uk
