Download your Wise up Wednesday compilation here

Every Wednesday, Barry Ashmore, managing director of,  sends out his Wise up Wednesday e-mail to all our e-mail subscribers.

Full of important information to help specialist contractors to keep on top of Contractual , Payment and other important business issues, it is essential reading for many. In fact, we know that many subbies actively watch for it landing in their in-boxes.

And what a month it’s been! In the may compilation issue there is information about:

  • ‘Construction in Crisis’ – an investigative  programme which we helped BBC Radio 4 to produce and which looked at industry-related payment issues
  • The smoke, mirrors, spin and BS used by the Contractors to delay or avoid paying Subbies
  • Why Subbies should avoid taking on any contract at any price and use StreetwiseSubbie to help them to generate better quality leads
  • According to Ernst and Young twice as many profit warnings were issued by FTSE construction and material companies in the first half of 2018 as in the same period of 2017. What Subbies can do to avoid problems.
