Growth workshops embraced

Monday 11 December 2017

Knowledge of funding and free business support was one of the top factors from the recent 'Grow your business' series of workshops.

The ‘Grow your Business’ brand of workshops was developed by the Chambers’ Learning and Skills Sector five years ago. During that time it has had a different focus of business growth - such as developing and investing in your own people, through apprenticeships, planning for growth - but with people at the heart of it. As with any growing business it is important to have the right people and skills set.

The 2017 theme was ‘innovation’ and working with partners Exemplas and Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership we have delivered a successful series which has enable businesses to learn and understand what free business support and grants are available via Innovate to Success programme and Signpost 2 Grow.

The latest workshop was held in Peterborough, supported by Allia Future Business Centre and Opportunity Peterborough, businesses took the chance to take part in workshops which made them think about and discuss their own ideas of business growth.

A new theme will be set for the 2018 series and would welcome any ideas or suggestions from members as to a theme and workshop element we could focus on. Send your ideas to Helen Bosett.
