The initiative has been chaired by Business Link WM's creative cultural and digital lead Lara Ratnaraja and hosted by AWM who said the beacon status was recognition of the strong partnerships between BLWM

invaluable, as it was crucial I got the pricing right and, from the start, my advisers have helped me overcome any doubts and have confidence in what I'm doing.
