It’s a new year and a new start – so in this episode of The Vaillant Podcast, we’re talking about business planning.

How can installer businesses get organised and put plans in place to help them take on 2024 in the best possible shape?

Joining host Mark Wilkins is Lee Tilbury of Hampshire-based Neater Heat, who brings some brilliant business planning advice to the show.

They chat about managing increased workloads during the winter months, how using technology helps Lee to keep on top of tax, and look ahead to new legislation that’s affecting the industry this year and beyond.

Plus, Lee explains why it’s vital to get out to trade shows and reveals his favourite Vaillant products.
