Evolution: A Rocky Recovery - Strategy & Forecasting


We are already well into 2011 and it is fair to say that any economic recovery appears somewhat fragile. Many factors remain high priority for UK businesses and it’s difficult to predict how some evolving issues will fully take hold.

Insolvency levels are not perhaps what the market would have anticipated and within this edition of evolution, we look at some of the pressure points on businesses and their sectors as they strive for growth.
