Outreach Events Programme Working with the British Chambers of Commerce, we are running a series of regional events throughout 2011 to allow businesses to hear directly from representatives of the UK’s leading banks and business groups and learn from other local business success stories. Click here to book your place or for more information on the upcoming events. Better Business Finance has a range of resources designed to give you practical help at whatever stage you are at in the development of your business. You can find information about lending guidelines, which set out the standards you can expect from banks when making lending decisions; and a new appeals process. Information about a new business mentor scheme will also be available here soon. We have also created a range of factsheets to provide you with more information on the different products and services available and guidance on everything from writing a business plan to managing cash flow.
