FSB Secretary to be given honorary fellowship

THE Secretary of Essex Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), David Miles, has been invited to be a founder Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE), launched earlier this year.

Essex FSB chairman, Iain Wicks, said: “Essex FSB is proud that our secretary, David Miles, has been invited to be a founder Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE) in recognition of his support for small businesses.

“As well as running his own very successful business David has served on the FSB’s National Policy Committee for Education, Training and Business Support and is the Essex FSB spokesman on these important issues.

“The IOEE is the very first entrepreneurs learning Institute and explicitly recognises and rewards the enterprise skills and know-how gained by people who successfully start and run their own enterprise.

“It is dedicated to recognising enterprise and entrepreneurship as a professional career choice. Professional institutes exist for most occupations but not, until now, for entrepreneurs and we are pleased that one of our local entrepreneurs is playing such a key role in the IoEE launch”

Essex FSB Secretary, David Miles, said: “Recognition of IOEE members will encourage more people to start and run their own businesses as they realise that this is a professional and worthwhile career option, at any age, which requires specific skills and know-how to succeed.

“Similarly, as more people move between employment and self-employment throughout their working life, major employers will recognise the benefits of employing IOEE members with the enterprise skillset and proven ability that they bring with them.
