Welcome to Better Business - the summer 2018 digital edition.

Better Business is a magazine dedicated to the small business community, brought to you by the Small Firms Association.   

In this edition, we bring you some seasonal summer ideas like how to bring fun and wellbeing to the workplace on a tight budget, a feature on teambuilding and social events for your staff, a look at the impact of nutrition on productivity and a sector spotlight on running a fitness business.


If the summer months are a quieter time for your business, seize the opportunity to tackle some strategic challenges. Our features on conducting risk assessment, consortium building and launching new products and services will help you get the ball rolling.   


For many of you, this time of year may conjure memories of teenage summers spent at the Gaeltacht. If so, check out our profiles of four entrepreneurs doing business through the Irish language.


Elsewhere in this edition you will find information on the SFA’s newly-launched campaign for a national Small Business Strategy, a peak behind the doors of Iconic Offices and a roundup of the SFA Annual Conference 2018. Along the way you will come across a diverse range of businesses, whose experiences may well give you a fresh take on your own venture.
