Apart from having to re-learn the language of the Public Sector, where it isn’t worth talking about unless it’s abbreviated, the pressures and pain are pretty much the same.
Back in the late 80's and early 90's we had Lord Young and his "whoosh" logo (very Nike in style) capped with a "we're doing good but we're not doing great" TV ad for the Enterprise Initiative. A Scottish actor playing the MD role, how profound given recent Celtic gains!
Like most Public sector programmes the more relevant to business and likelihood of actual results meant it was binned upon a change of government. The baby seems to go out with the bath water every time and it’s still happening today.
I just discovered that Business Links are no more. We've now got LEPS (which sounds like a medical problem), sprouting Growth Hubs (keeping the medical theme going here).
I am slowly getting to know my ESIF from my RGF, my ERDF from my ESF all apparently connected to my Horizon 2020 (the year I probably understand all the abbreviations)!
