LRQA attended the Federation of Small Business (FSB) Conference at the end of March where we showcased our Small Business Self-start Toolkit.
The Toolkit, part of our Small Business Scheme, is aimed at smaller organisations who are struggling to find the resources to implement and become certified to an international management system standard for:
- Quality - ISO 9001
- Environmental - ISO 14001
- Occupational Health and Safety - OHSAS 18001
The Conference and Exhibition ran from Thursday, 27 March until Saturday, 29 March 2014 and was a chance for SME's to listen to high-profile speakers, quiz the panel on current issues and network with other SME's.
Lynne Fitton, SME and Prospects Manager comments: “LRQA is the only certification body that offers a Small Business Scheme for the three main management system standards.”
It was important for us to attend the FSB Conference to showcase our Scheme and increase our brand awareness amongst SME’s,” she concludes.
Not only did the Conference enable LRQA to increase our brand awareness, it also helped us build relationships with the Federation of Small Business for any future marketing initiatives.
