Why become an SBC Assessor?

Being an assessor for the Small Business Charter Award is hugely rewarding at a personal and professional level. Moreover, it is a great opportunity for networking and meeting your counterparts from business schools and the small business community.

''The role gives me an opportunity to continuously evaluate the activities in my own business school and to think through how we can improve what we do for SMEs."
