SMEs should innovate and scale up

15 June 2017

Businesses need to overcome their “reticence” to innovate and scale up in order to take advantage of upcoming opportunities, an audience at event at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park was told.

Paul Cadman, chief executive of Manufacturing Matters, also highlighted how the lack of vision was holding back the long-term futures of companies.

“I also think there’s an issue of succession planning,” he said.

“Where are we going to be? Who’s going to lead the company for you?”
