“As the onsite business adviser, I’m known as the BIC’s business agony aunt. I love meeting up with new and established businesses and helping them to achieve their dreams and goals. Acting as a sounding board, we work together to explore new opportunities or talk through an issue you might be facing. The BIC will support you in any way we can but if this is not possible we are able to reach out to a wide network of other support that is available outside of the BIC from our many trusted partners”.
