  • Sheila from Swann Systems is an active member of the Federation of Small Businesses in Rugby. From attending the regular networking events, Sheila is keen to point out: “The FSB has really become an integral part of our business since 2004 – it offers professional support and advice on legal policy and employment matters, and the networking events provide a regular source of business, contacts and learning. But more than that, running a business can sometimes be a lonely role, and the FSB is a great way to stay in contact with other business owners who are facing and overcoming similar challenges to me. There’s a real sense of comradeship and friendship which is so reassuring.”
  • Sheila continues “The term ‘entrepreneur’ nowadays seems to be associated with Alan Sugar, and aggressive selling! We stick to our version of entrepreneurial spirit; identifying new ways to work with what we have, and who we know to create success for all. We continuously try out new ways of doing things, taking action is the major difference between progress and stagnation, and we measure the results so we know if it’s working well. It’s a straightforward concept, but it works!
