Making a noise in the corridors of power

02 Feb 2018

Large group of IoD 99 members outside number 10 Downing StreetNot only do we have an awesome community of founders who meet regularly across the UK, but we also have political clout too…

In mid 2017 the IoD 99 was invited to bring a delegation of Founders to Number 10 Downing Street to meet with the Prime Minister’s Special Advisor for Business. The session went so well that we were invited to make it a regular meeting!

So, what was discussed? What were the outcomes? What did delegates get out of it (aside from the mandatory selfies outside the famous black door)? For the inside track, make sure you catch the interviews below with the 99ers who came along.

Thinking global

For the first meeting we didn’t go small, the IoD99 is an international network with global reach, and this is why we kicked off with a discussion of how to boost international trade for small businesses and startups! 15 IoD 99ers attended the meeting to talk about their businesses and how they have managed to make the most of the global market place. 

Covering everything from tax and talent, to trade shows and on the ground support, check out the feedback on our video playlist below...
