GT surveys business

Have your say

Business leaders from the Sheffield city region are being invited to have their say on key issues in business and financial advisor Grant Thornton’s annual Business Confidence Survey.

The firm has invited more than 1,000 local business leaders to take part in the survey, which asks them how they expect the region to fair over the next 12 months.

Last year’s survey found business confidence in the region was at its highest level for three years.

Paul Houghton, assurance partner at Grant Thornton’s Sheffield office, said: “It will be interesting to see what impact the Government’s recent budget has had on business confidence, as initial reactions suggested businesses welcomed the measures introduced by the Chancellor.”

Company directors who have not received their 2011 Business Confidence Survey should contact Katie Smith: 0114 262 9794 or email:

n The new Local Enterprise Councils, set up to drive growth and create jobs, have a board comprising business and council leaders.
