Gloucestershire Business School is hosting a free taster session of the Help to Grow: Management course.

It will also include some insightful taster content from the modules covered by the course:

• Building an effective approach to marketing to your chosen customer segments

• Designing your organisation to support future growth and a positive culture

• How to improve operational efficiency in your business to support easier growth

Plus, there will be the opportunity for a Q&A session and the chance to hear from people who have completed the course, to learn more about their experience and how it has already helped make a positive impact in their business.

There will also be details of what to do next if you'd like to join the course.

About Help to Grow: Management

Aimed at small and medium businesses, the Help to Grow: Management course is run by business schools accredited by the Small Business Charter, and 90 per cent funded by the UK Government, meaning each attendee pays just £750.

The practically focused course runs across 12 modules in 12 weeks and features a blend of online sessions, face-to-face workshops, direct support from a specialist business mentor and peer to peer networking, all designed to help leaders grow their businesses.

Emily Phillips, head of marketing at Smart Home Sounds of Cheltenham, said: "The Help to Grow: Management programme has been a fantastic resource for me and far exceeded my expectations.

"The course materials, mentor sessions, peer groups and weekly sessions have helped me grow in confidence as a leader within my own business and created the space and opportunity to explore new areas for growth.

"Dedicating the time to this course has ensured I continue to work on the business as a whole and given me the chance to engage with some fantastic individuals from a wide variety of businesses. It's been great to get a different perspective and network with other local businesses going through their own growth journey.

"A special thank you to the course leaders who have offered fantastic support and really helped me to engage and start implementing new strategies right from week one."

The next cohort of the Help to Grow: Management scheme starts on November 23, with a quick onboarding call on November 16. It's a good time of year to get started with the scheme, as it will provide great support in the run-up to the new year and your business planning activity for 2023.
