The Welcome meeting at Prism Group last Thursday was another successful event facilitated by the HH&DBA.

René Moolenaar gave an introduction to Prism Group and how they provide a bespoke service to small and medium sized business by combining disciplines such as strategy development, accountancy and marketing as well as taking an active approach in providing them.

The highlight of the evening was a presentation by Paul Jones of the Manufacturing Advisory Service about how the principles of lean manufacturing can be used to improve the efficiency in an office environment. Attached to this email are his presentation as well as details of projects which are eligible for a MAS grant. Important to note that this is available to companies who operate in a manufacturing supply chain but who are themselves not manufacturers.
