When I started, I knew some areas of the business needed to change but now I can see clearly how we can solve problems and improve what we are doing.
I have also learnt how to identify our strengths and the things that we are doing well and how we can maximise these.
The cohesion of the group has made it a pleasure coming to the sessions, the questions others asked made me question new areas in my own business that I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.
Kerry Shoesmith, Operational Director at Anderida Care
It is an incredible programme, delivered by a very talented team. Its compact format ensures that it fits around my busy work schedule, but it doesn’t cut corners.
We have already applied a resource based strategy to kick off a new catering business!
I would absolutely recommend this programme to anyone looking to evolve their organisation by leveraging modern management tools / techniques and learnings.
Kyriakos Baxevanis, CO-founder and MD of Nostos Restaurant
It’s given me the confidence to move our operations and culture forward.
I was worried everyone would be more experienced than me but they couldn’t have been more welcoming and supportive.
We have all learnt from each other as well as from the course content.
Natasha Chandler, Sales Manager at Sussex Blinds Ltd.
The Help to Grow course was a superb addition to a busy full-time job, striking a good balance between theory and practice, ensuring things learned can be applied to my actual job.

HWM Sports cars
Help to Grow has helped us analyse our business and form a strategy for growing and thriving.
The comprehensive structure of the course provides an invaluable overview to both new starts and mature businesses. The interactive nature has been thoroughly enjoyable and the mentor programme extremely helpful.
Guy Jenner, CEO of HWM Sports Cars Ltd.
As a business grows it presents new challenges and the course provided a way to see how best to manage these and exploit opportunities.
It supports you in taking time to get away from the day-to-day and allows you to take a fresh look at what you are doing. It’s great to discuss ideas with other and the course tutors in a supportive space.
I think the module I got most out of was the one on Vision and Mission, as it allowed us to review our current business position and refine what we stand for.
Duncan Ray, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Focus SB
Spark & Bell
The course has helped me realise that I am not alone, that the issues and problems I face leading an SME are similar to those faced by others.
It’s made me appreciate that I know more than I thought, but there is still more to learn as I want to be the most effective leader I can.
The face-to-face workshop has made me much more confident around figures and the financial planning tools. I cannot wait to get stuck in.
Emer Gillespie, CEO/Owner of Spark & Bell
