The South West Business Council works closely with regional and national governments as well as Local Enterprise Partnership and local authorities to ensure that the strategic interests of the South West are clearly represented.

We have over 20 years experience of guiding and supporting South West businesses and our board brings huge experience from the worlds of finance, law, education, communications, digital, business networks, development, social enterprise and the environment.

As a voice for the South West business community, we regularly comment on key topics impacting the wider region in the media.
