Explore Independent Cambridge: CM Resource


With the help of Independent Cambridge - the community of ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network continues its weekly exploration of the best independent shops, cafés, restaurants, people, businesses, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: CM Resource.

The entrepreneurial spirit is certainly alive and kicking in Cambridge, with lots of small businesses and start-ups throughout all sectors, from biotech to street food and pretty much everything in between. But it can be difficult running a small business – with heavy demands on time and resources, it can be hard to keep that all important strategic overview.

That’s where CM Resource run by Clare Morris comes in. Clare is a freelance business consultancy and development resource, working solely with the city’s independent businesses.

Clare has a wealth of experience to call on, having helped many small businesses throughout Cambridgeshire with support, planning & development and best practice. Plus, with her external business perspective, she has helped many clients identify the thing about their business that makes it unique. Sounds obvious maybe, but when you’re dealing with the day-to-day tasks, it’s easy to lose sight of ‘the bigger picture’. Clare’s love of Cambridge also plays a massive part in why she is so passionate about helping local indies to thrive, and her knowledge and passion for the city really adds an extra dimension for all the businesses she works with – which includes Independent Cambridge!

If a company needs ongoing assistance or just a helping-hand for a one-off project, Clare provides a flexible, reliable and professional proactive service. As well as offering project management, social media and web start-up consultancy, specialist project recruitment and Xero accounting for small businesses, CMR specialises in best practice for data storage and CMR systems – particularly timely with the current GDPR compliance, with Clare providing checklists and implementation for small business to get them set up with how to work in accordance with all the lovely new regulations.
