Constructive Dialogue at HM Treasury




It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to have a direct line of communication with the policymakers shaping the future of our country. For Gary Blunden, founder of Blundens, that day came when he was invited to HM Treasury to discuss a pivotal report – ‘Tech Tonic‘.


"While the 'Tech Tonic' report lays a foundation, it's the collective effort of policymakers, business leaders and industry stakeholders that will determine the trajectory of the tech sector in the UK."


Blundens at the Forefront

Put together by the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses), the ‘Tech Tonic’ report offers critical policy updates aimed at fostering a more vibrant and resilient tech ecosystem in the UK.

With small businesses playing an increasingly vital role in the modern economy, recommendations from such reports hold significant weight in ensuring a forward-looking legislative framework that supports small companies delivering technology and innovation.

While the ‘Tech Tonic’ report lays a foundation, it’s the collective effort of policymakers, business leaders and industry stakeholders that will determine the trajectory of the tech sector in the UK.

In an esteemed meeting room inside the HM Treasury, Gary had the privilege to discuss the report’s insights and implications with Gareth Davies MP. This was not just a conversation about policies, but a comprehensive discussion about the aspirations and challenges of small tech businesses in the current landscape.

Gary shared, “Engaging with Gareth was enlightening. It’s crucial for government officials to have a direct understanding from business founders. Our conversations were constructive and it’s clear that there’s a keen interest in supporting small businesses more robustly.

Blundens has always been an advocate for nurturing tech talent and innovation. Being part of such important discussions only solidifies its role as a leading voice in the tech business community. Gary’s insights, rooted in real-world experiences, offers a unique perspective that’s instrumental in guiding policymaking.

There’s a promising path ahead for Blundens. We remain committed to playing our part, shaping a brighter future for technology and for small businesses in the UK.
