Next event:

Not Just Networking
Asset Finance is Like a Box of Chocolates
29th November 2023

Our ever popular Not Just Networking event will be taking place on Wednesday 29th November 2023.

Taking inspiration from Forrest Gump’s unusual way of perceiving the world, James Robinson’s session, “Asset Finance is Like a Box of Chocolates” will be a behind the scenes perspective on asset finance that will leave attendees with a different perception on the world of finance.

You will leave with:

  • An understanding of how to be prepared to apply for finance
  • An insight into the mind of a broker and underwriter
  • Awareness of situations where asset finance can transform businesses
  • Hopefully a smile on your face!

A bit about our speaker

James Robinson

James is the founder of Next Step Asset Finance and prides himself on consistently creating positive outcomes for all his customers. He recognises that decision makers have many important plates spinning at the same time, so he works hard to take away all the hassle and stress from their plant, equipment, machinery and vehicle purchases.

Adopting a consultative approach, James builds strong relationships with his clients across the UK to ensure that the solutions he provides are supporting the wider aims and objectives of their business. Rather than taking information on face value, he digs deeper to make sure the client gets the solution they need rather than what they think they want.

One of his main aims is to raise awareness of asset finance and the many benefits it can create; many of which aren’t always immediately apparent to clients. James has a passion for sharing these across his network so that businesses can take advantage.
