Stage 4 - Thinking Better For Success!

Do more than survive: GROW!

At the beginning of 2018, we piloted a business growth programme to support delegates who have been running a business for more than eighteen months, move on to the next stage of their business journey.
We have delivered two successful programmes which have proven to be more successful than we could ever have imagined.

As a result of our successful pilot course and by popular demand we have created a tailored programme, ‘Thinking Better for Success’ which is Stage 4 of our award winning ‘Supporting the Unsung Hero’ programme.  If you have a business which has been trading for between 18 months and 3 years and you’re looking to take your next steps along your business journey, then ‘Thinking Better for Success’ will help take your start-up business from surviving to thriving. Delivered and supported by our experienced team of business advisers, we want to see our delegates and their businesses continue to grow and succeed.

Delegate Feedback

"I took the opportunity to join the Start-up to Sustainability programme to learn how to be motivated to take my business to a new level. After completing the course, I had a plan in place for where I wanted to be in a year and how to get there. The monthly mentoring sessions really helped me to stay on track – or get back on track! The programme helped me to develop as a person, which in turn helped me to be better at meeting my business goals."
