Several representatives of S A Partners were delighted to attend a fabulous evening at the Celtic Manor in Newport. The dinner was hosted by HSBC as part of their Global Connections competition. Global Connection is a major initiative to support UK businesses and S A Partners were thrilled to be one of six Wales and West regional finalists. Meet the Finalists Earlier in the day, each of finalists pitched to a team of judges. Sadly, we were not successful on this occasion. Nevertheless, we believe we gained a great deal through participation, not least a study tour to explore business opportunities in the Far East. We would like to congratulate to thank HSBC and wish the two worthy Wales and West regional finalists (Pukka Herbs and Bremont Watch Company) the best of luck at the national finals.
