The topic for this week's #CumbriaHour on Twitter was: 'how can this government help small businesses?'

Next week sees #CumbriaHour focus on 'hints and tips to stay motivated and focused in your business/job'.
#CumbriaHour is an online networking event which takes place every Monday from 7-8pm on Twitter.
