Welcome to the April edition of Corporate Vision Magazine, which is packed with news and features including intellectual property, investment, information technology, recruitment and the latest deals to name a few.

We learn that 2017 marks the 14th anniversary of Small Business Advice Week (SBAW). Small and medium sized businesses make up 99% of all businesses in the UK, but with international conglomerates constantly grabbing the headlines, SBAW is shining the light on the unsung backbone of the UK economy.

In other research, 86% of financial services firms intend to increase the time and resources they spend on cybersecurity in the next year, according to new research from the organisation Duff & Phelps.

I hope you enjoy reading this edition.
