Incorporatewear has recently taken part in HSBC’s Business Question Time Event for the West Midlands which was held on 17 June 2010 at The Belfry.
The event formed part of HSBC’s Business Thinking 2010 initiative and saw local businesses pitting questions to a panel chaired by Peter Sissons. Taking part were businessman Peter Selkirk, editor of the Birmingham Evening Post Jon Griffin and, from HSBC, Senior Economist Mark Beresford-Smith and Ian Tandy, Head of Trade for HSBC’s Trade and Supply Chain UK.
In classic Question Time style questions were taken from the audience, which included Chris Wood, a director of Incorporatewear and Mark Jenkins, the company’s Financial Controller.
“It was fascinating to understand a broader perspective on China’s influence on the world economy,” explains Mark, “and, closer to home, the impact of the recession on local businesses and the likely financial effects of the government’s next budget.”
Certainly HSBC’s initiative is proving to be a positive challenge for UK businesses and not least for Incorporatewear, which as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of corporate clothing, has been providing HSBC with its uniforms since 2007.
“HSBC is one of our best-known and most recognisable clients,” comments Chris. “We are delighted to be providing the bank’s corporate uniforms and equally pleased to be able to support HSBC in events such as this.”
