Sales coach takes a trip to Number 10 for Small Business Saturday

Mr Osborne said: “”Britain’s small business owners deserve our support. They are the ones who take the risks to create new opportunities and new jobs, that show off British ingenuity and innovation and I am glad that once again they will be able to be the focus of all our attention and support.”
