Gregg Latchams and Milsted Langdon join forces to support Bristol business community
Leading Bristol law firm Gregg Latchams and award-winning chartered accountants Milsted Langdon have partnered to deliver a new ‘Bristol Bounce Back’ initiative, designed to help businesses across the South West region recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Supported by an expert panel made up of many of the West’s leading business luminaries from organisations including; the Bank of England’s South West agent, John Lewis, West of England Combined Authority, Business West, Quartet Community Foundation, Gapsquare and Barclays plc, the Bristol Bounce Back series has been designed to provide some practical answers to the ‘Big Questions’ for businesses as the economy recovers. The panel held a digital round-table discussion to identify the key issues and challenges businesses are facing, in order to share knowledge and insight with the wider Bristol and South West business community.
Launching on Wednesday 15th July, the first of a series of interactive online events will feature Bristol Bounce Back panel members as well as expert contribution from Gregg Latchams and Milsted Langdon. The theme for the first event will be focused on Reopening the city, economy and workplace: how does Bristol get it right? The outcomes of the round-table discussions will provide clarity to organisations, help them understand the emerging responses and solutions around our region and build their own plans and recovery strategy.
Over the next 6 months and beyond Gregg Latchams, Milsted Langdon and the Bristol Bounce Back panel will continue to ensure a steady flow of advice and forward thinking to businesses and organisations in the region, with a particular focus on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Themes will include; recovery-ready workforces, promoting regional confidence, help for at risk sectors and supporting disadvantaged & vulnerable work groups.
Commenting on the Bristol Bounce Back initiative, Richard Hill, Managing Director at Gregg Latchams said: “As long standing members of the South West business community we want to play our part in bringing people together to ask the big questions and encourage the collaborations which will start to address them. Our region is rich in both skills and entrepreneurial spirit and by harnessing this, businesses large and small, cross-sector, can help each other to forge a way forward.”
Roger Isaacs, Partner at Milsted Langdon said: “Despite what we may sometimes seem to imply, my colleagues and I are all too aware that accountants and lawyers don’t have all the answers at the moment. That’s why it has been a privilege to hear so many positive and inspiring ideas from some of the Bristol’s most thoughtful minds, representing a hugely diverse range of sectors. We are all facing the enormous new challenges and regardless of whether we work in retail, education, manufacturing or hospitality, none of us has a monopoly on good ideas and we can all learn from each other. In fact, collaboration has never been more important and seldom has there been such a generosity of spirit as we have seen in the City recently with so many people generously share their ideas for the common benefit of us all. We at Milsted Langdon are proud to be able to play a small part in the process”.
