Q1 2021

Welcome to the 2021 Q1 edition of SME News Magazine, where we provide you with all of the latest news, announcements, and features about some of the best up-and-coming enterprises around the United Kingdom.

SME News is proud to celebrate the success of small businesses such as Brixly, which has recognised a nationwide need for businesses to have their own outstanding website and online presence. Under the guidance of Dennis Nind, Brixly had grown to become the Best Independent Web Hosting Brand 2020 in the Midlands Enterprise Awards last year, and that success has carried through to 2021. There is far more to Brixly’s story which you can find inside, alongside a wealth of knowledgeable insights and success stories.

Welcome to the Q2 issue of SME News. And so we’ve reached the re-opening stages of this lockdown, tentative though it may be. With the next few days bringing about a host of business-related openings there is the expectation that we’re truly emerging out of the other side. Albeit, without many of the ‘normal’ expectations we have. It’s been a baptism of fire for businesses new and old, in a truly unprecedented situation that no one could really predict or wholly prepare for. This issue will then focus on the optimism presented by the unknown future. Even if we do have to backtrack and return to more distant times, we will be more prepared and knowledgeable about what to expect. We’re experienced now in it all. Lessons have been learned, and companies up and down the country will be better equipped to grow and thrive in less-trying times. Onwards and upwards. So, whenever you have the time, sit back and take a look at this issue. We’ve focused on a select number of SMEs that are looking at becoming better, more resilient and more robust in the months and years to come. In the meantime, we hope you stay safe. We’ll be here next quarter to give you the latest in UK SME news. Read more
