“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
Some people dip their toes in the pool of support offered to others, whereas Tony Robinson OBE dives into the deep end. He has long been a vocal campaigner for freelancers, micro-businesses, and (more recently) those excluded by Government support during the Covid pandemic, but what spurs him on? Why does he dedicate so much to be a champion for business and business owners? How can freelancers, and other business owners, help each other? How would Tony’s business world differ from the one we’re in now? All these and more are discussed in this week’s podcast.
