npower teams up with Alex Polizzi to give small businesses a boost


As part of its work to support the UK’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), npower has enlisted the expertise of retail and hospitality guru, Alex Polizzi to deliver inspiration and advice to retail businesses and their suppliers at Autumn Fair International at the NEC in Birmingham on 1 September.


npower is sponsoring this year’s Autumn Fair International, the UK’s largest premier retail buying event, as part of its wider commitment to work with SMEs to help them better manage their energy use. In addition, npower is also focused on developing a better understanding of the practical needs of its SME customers – as part of this pledge, its senior management team are undertaking work placements in a range of small businesses across the UK.


npower has partnered with Alex Polizzi due to her experience and knowledge of working in a small, family run business, which now sees her helping SMEs across the country in well-known TV shows The Hotel Inspector and Alex Polizzi: The Fixer.


At the Autumn Fair International event, Alex will be sharing her expertise with retailers in an exclusive seminar and npower will be talking to retailers about their business and energy-related challenges, what support they are looking for from suppliers, as well as how effective energy management can achieve real cost savings for them.


Jason Scagell, director of npower SME, commented: “It is great to be able to work with someone like Alex, who has extensive experience in helping businesses to succeed, and we believe visitors to the show will benefit from Alex’s advice. This partnership and our presence at Autumn Fair International are designed to offer retail businesses and their suppliers access to invaluable consultancy and support.


“As a company, we’re committed to working closely with SMEs to get a true insight into their daily challenges and what they’re looking for from us, so Autumn Fair International provides the ideal opportunity to do this.  Our continued focus on the needs of our SME customers will ensure we develop the right products and services for them, so we look forward to talking with businesses at the event so we can continue to do just that.”


Alex Polizzi adds: “Independent businesses are vital to the retail sector and the Autumn Fair is an excellent opportunity for these thriving companies to get advice to help them grow. I am delighted to be working with npower to share my own experiences at the exclusive seminar on 1 September.”
