Business Leaders are confident in the prospects for their own businesses in stark contrast to their confidence in the UK economy.
78% of members of The Clubhouse feel positive about the prospects for their business despite s similar percentage being uncertain about the UK economy, with almost half having a negative outlook for the UK economy over the next 12 months.
77% of members polled also expect to employ additional staff over the next 12 months – their businesses are growing.
April 2019: The results of a recent poll, responded to by over 165 senior business leaders who are members of The Clubhouse, London's leading business members club, have been released. Home to 600 businesses of all shapes and sizes, members are primarily fast-growing SMEs and well-known blue-chip names, therefore a representative barometer of business confidence in the UK.
With the continued uncertainty that is plaguing the UK and Europe due to Brexit, it will be no surprise to hear that the results show 80% of members are uncertain about the UK economy, with 48% having a negative outlook regarding the UK economy over the next 12 months and another 32% on the fence about the year ahead.
