Shropshire is renowned for its professional businesses and creative excellence, which together represent the best of innovative design, marketing and professional services. Shropshire boasts some of the leading accountancy and legal practices in the region, with many smaller and specialist business consultancies providing essential business services within and beyond the county boundaries. The PBS sector is estimated to create over 20% of the GVA in the Shropshire economy, employing approximately 20% of the working population.

Shropshire has a high proportion of small and micro business, with many highly qualified and creative business professionals choosing to work in urban and, more noticeably than other regions, in rural locations.

The benefit of joining SBP is in the value derived from relevant, informative and stimulating presentations by industry experts combined with meeting and collaborating with other professionals in complementary businesses, to share knowledge, to form alliances and to develop the business relationships that create better business opportunities.

Shropshire Business Partnership is owned by its members and governed by a small working group of experienced business people with excellent networking credentials. If you would like to be more closely involved with the development of SBP, please email info@shropshirebusiness.org
