I read that David Cameron is asking business leaders to help support the Whitehall efficiency drive. The names currently in the hat are Lord Brown, Anthony Habgood and Sir Chris Gent – these are all highly respected and successful people in their fields. However they are corporate men who have earned 7 figure salaries and housed themselves in “big posh big time offices”. Where is the SME entrepreneur representation in this Group? Well my opinion is that if the Government want to see how they can do more with less then visit a few of the 4million entrepreneurs that underpin the economy of our Country – represent 50% of jobs and output – also the vehicle for getting us out of the recession. These are men and women who know only too well how to save a few quid here and there. Is cost saving part of the mindset of the individuals David Cameron is looking to appoint?
