I enjoyed presenting to the British and Irish Trading Alliance last week about how banks react during recessions and what business owners can do to prepare for a different banking environment.

The British and Irish Trading Alliance is a non-profit making organisation that encourages its members to build relationships to generate business through exciting networking, educational and social events held in both countries.

Their mission is to promote and strengthen trade between both countries through a friendly, driven and diverse group of like-minded professionals.
