Simon Beardsley said “QES intelligence is key to shaping the frequency and type of support provided to local businesses.

“As good business practice it is important to understand the economic landscape. The unfiltered information we can access from QES can underpin strategic decision to ensure we grow in the right way”.


The Lincolnshire QES forms part of the British Chamber of Commerce national business survey and is one of the most significant contributors to this vital piece of research.

The results are closely watched and analysed by senior officials, business leaders, government at both a local and national level as well as the HM Treasury and the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee.
