Up to 200 business owners and leaders attended the event by the accountancy, investment management and tax group on Monday evening, October 9th.

Each year Smith & Williamson hosts an annual event to bring together clients in the local market in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Andrew Edmonds is the managing partner at the South Coast office of Smith & Williamson, which employs 65 staff in Southampton.

He said: “The hotel, styled as a super yacht, is spectacular inside and out and is a fantastic addition to the Southampton skyline and the city’s hospitality sector."

Gary Jeffries, chairman of Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and managing director of commercial property consultancy Hughes Ellard, is guest speaker.

He highlighted the steps being taken to unlock the region’s potential for growth.

One of the challenges identified in the Solent region, which has 50,000-plus businesses, is the ability of firms to successfully grow from start-up to scale up.

Smith & Williamson is a corporate founder of the ScaleUp Institute, helping to influence and improve the ecosystem for entrepreneurial businesses and facilitating their development and growth.
