    Welcome to the London & South East community introductions thread. This is a new space for people in the local area to come in, say hello and let everyone know what their hopes and goals are from their time on UK Business Forums.

    Feel free to introduce yourself here and make others feel welcome :) If you know someone in your area who may benefit from joining in, be sure to let them know about us as well.

    While you're welcome to let people know what you're working on and a bit of background, please avoid anything that could come across as a sales pitch and, even if you're an established member, please don't link to your business here. The idea is to give people a chance to get to know each other and what's going on in their region.

    Never really sure whether we are classed as South East, being in Southampton? But thought I'd post here anyway.

    Have recently set up a business offering freelance credit control services, for those of you who are too busy trying to get the sales and build your business to spend time chasing for payment of those sales, I have found the forum really useful, sometimes just lurking, sometimes posting.

    Always happy to receive PM's and help others wherever possible if I can.

    I've worked in the IT industry for over 20 years and have recently started a firm based in London which offers advice on R&D tax relief to firms mostly performing software development and manufacturing products.

    It's quite exciting as I get to see lots of cutting edge technology and also help firms who are performing R&D to claim cash back from the HMRC, this can mean the difference between a firm going down before getting their product to market or a successful launch, which is what R&D tax relief was designed for in the first place.

    I joined UK Business Forums quite recently and am enjoying helping others out with their questions/issues, so if anyone has any questions regarding R&D tax relief, I'm happy to answer them, either PM or post somewhere so everyone else can see the answers.

    We're also Kent based having moved here from St Albans around 6 years ago - it's a beautiful part of Britain!

    We’ve been providing businesses with project management and consultancy services since 2005. Running a small business ourselves means that, at one time or another, we’ve experienced most of the problems that business owners face, like not having enough work or having too much work and feeling isolated. We believe that small business growth is key to global economic recovery, so we've started a new online venture which we hope will do our bit to help.

    We have added a few posts on UK Business Forums so far but look forward to being more active in providing some answers.

    Hi, I'm a newbie on this site so I just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I am developing a virtual assistance business, with the 'white van' person being my primary client. I have a passion for helping people and have found, recently, that this is really appreciated. So, hello for now, I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone :)

    Hello all,

    I'm a sales and account manager almost 2 years into my first commercial position.

    My company imports and distributes specialist oriental food and drink throughout the UK and Europe and am branching ever further into the continent!

    Give me a shout if you have any Oriental food queries and I'll be happy to help out.

    As I am still "relatively" new in the industry I am keen on networking and trying to find out the best/most efficient way of doing things.
    I am looking forward to participating! :cool:

    My name is Chris and I am based in Gosport, near Portsmouth.
    I am a freelance front-end developer and web designer.

    My initial plan is to work with local small and medium sized businesses to help get them a quality, affordable online presence.

    I realise this forum seems saturated with "web designers", you can consider me another one of those if you want - just better. ;)

    I am looking to learn plenty from the forum archives, but also hope I can add to the community and provide any help or advice where I can.
