With the release of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) figures today (July 25), ITV Anglia speaks to some of its Business Club members to see what their expectations are.
Launched at the start of the year, the ITV Business Club is made up of a pool of businessmen and women across the country from firms big and small.
With the country in recession, the question on all politicians’ lips is ‘how to make the economy grow?’
With the ITV Business Club, we go straight to real business leaders running firms up and down the country to get their views.
In the Anglia region our members come from diverse business backgrounds, from manufacturing to aerospace to service and retail.
Among our members are people who have survived the toughest business conditions and know what it’s like keeping a company afloat when the banks do not want to lend.
Our members have given opinions and views on some of the challenges facing businesses and how to get things back on track.
Our members are:
- Terry Holloway, The MarshallGroup of Companies
- Andy Wood, Adnams
- Drew Mullin, Woburn Safari Park
- Mike Ottolangui, Milltech Precision Engineering
- Jacqui Fairfax, CUB
- John Moore, Windcrop
- Iain Forsythe, Premier Kitchens and Bedrooms
- Catherine Temple, MrsTemple’s Cheese
