When TextLocal Met Vince Cable at Innovation Event Liverpool

On 31st October our Marketing and Communications Director Rob Townsend met Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills at an Innovation event in Liverpool hosted by Hays.

The event was well received, with attendees from across the North West and centred around helping local businesses to flourish in the modern business environment.

Mr Cable put out a strong call at the event for northwest businesses to drive digital innovation and technology as a hub for the UK. At the event Rob quizzed Mr Cable on the government objective to drive 25% of total spend through SMEs; he offered support for this objective and committed to providing support in meeting it.
