Tim Ladhams, Editor at Inside Small Business
Tim is responsible for all the content on the Inside Small Business website and in the quarterly magazine. He has come into journalism after a long career – including management roles – in hospitality, insurance and credit management, giving him significant insights into the way business works. His experience as a credit manager offered a first-hand experience of dealing with the issue that small-business owners repeatedly cite as their biggest challenge to staying afloat and prospering – getting paid by those to whom they have provided goods or services!
Tim now combines this business experience with a particular passion for start-ups and small businesses, a sector he is now fully immersed in and for which he is a passionate advocate. The highlight of his journalism career has been the enthusiasm with which every year’s Inside Small Business Top 50 Small Business Leaders Report has been received by the small-business communities around the country.
