Corporate Vision April 2017

2 CORPORATE VISION / April 2017 Editor’s Note , 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. Jonathan Miles, Editor Phone: +44 (0) 203 725 6842 Email: jonatha [email protected] Website: AI Global Media, Ltd.
