Secrets of silver success

Market research group FDS International is celebrating 25 years in business and is looking for other SMEs that achieve their silver anniversary in 1998 or 1997. The company wants to conduct a survey into the success factors that enable small and medium-sized businesses to survive for a quarter of a century and is eager to hear from companies that want to take part. The results of the survey will be published later this year.

It will be interesting to see if many companies can match FDS’s track record of keeping one client – BT – for 24 of its 25 year history. Readers from silver-jubilee SMEs who want to take part can contact FDS’s Lynn Garrard on (0171) 272 7766, fax on (0171) 272 4468 or e-mail
