It’s awesome because it is a team of (27) experienced business development and business management specialists. Each is a successful ‘Cornerstone’ in their respective area of business specialisation.

Jim’s other awesomeness includes organising two events open to all businesses each year (including GDPR event that sold out very quickly).
