New Business?

Giving you structured and professional training in the areas that count for business growth. There are also opportunities for 1-2-1 support through this process.

If your business is has a few employees, and your intention is growth, you will learn how to streamline your processes and get the best out of what you put into your business. This is the time to identify how you can maximise your effectiveness and how you might benefit from outsourcing to external business support services.

I'd just like to say many thanks to Isabel and Dawn for the session yesterday.  It was perfectly pitched for me as someone at the pre-start up stage and I enjoyed the friendly, informal atmosphere.
