This morning’s Business Breakfast was held at the recently refurbished Spot in the Woods, formerly known as Hotel Terravina.
After a warm welcome from the hotel, we tucked into some delicious bacon baps before Sandeep Sesodia, from MGPS Commercial Ltd, presented on the topic ‘Unlocking Commercial Finance – A clear guide to how businesses can access finance’.
Sandeep has a successful track record of over 35 years in Banking and Finance, providing support and guidance to all business. His aim is to assist businesses to realise their strategic and long term goals by providing appropriate finance structures. Building and developing relationships is core to his values. Sandeep is also the chairman of City Councils Connect Group as well as being an active and key board member of the New Forest Business Partnership.
During his presentation Sandeep stressed the importance of always seeking professional advice especially for start-up businesses.
Sandeep also highlighted when businesses are looking to borrow money the key points to consider such as why the businesses is asking for money, have they considered who they wish to borrow from and the most important point, can the business afford to borrow.
The discussion was then opened up to the room and it was suggested that knowing where to go to borrow money and who to ask can be a daunting task.
There is a lot of help and support available from many businesses around the New Forest District who are keen to advise and support and most importantly listen to what the business owner financial needs are.
