Rethinking the Regions

Our Rethinking the Regions hub gives you an insight into your local economy and how it is performing compared with the rest of the UK. You'll receive key information and insights from local experts to help you navigate your business as we emerge from the pandemic and global economic pressures and uncertainty continue to create a challenging business environment.

Our bi-monthly Rethinking the Economy survey assesses the confidence of 500 mid-market business leaders from across the UK as well as getting their views on current issues and future plans.

Our insights have been curated to tackle the issues facing UK’s mid-market businesses, for example, skills shortages, supply chain disruption, Brexit, rising costs and the importance of the Government’s regional levelling up policy.

We are passionate about the future growth of UK businesses. Our Rethink framework gives you and your organisation a template for safeguarding your operations, building resilience and succeeding in the new reality. To find out more, talk to us now.
