Managing SMEs: research insights and implications for practice

The Breakfast Briefing, which took place on 30 September 2014, looked at current challenges in managing and financing small and medium-sized businesses.

Dr Richard Blundel, Senior Lecturer in Enterprise Development, shared insights from The Quarterly Survey of Small Business in Britain. In these video highlights, Richard reports on what SME owners and managers see as the best and worst aspects of owning and/or managing their own business, as compared to alternative career options; their short- to medium-term goals for the business and how they measure its success.
