New Programme to Help SMEs Succeed
11th July 2019
We recently partnered with Be the Business to support smaller family firms to make the changes that will help them take their business to the next level.
This summer, eight family businesses in Lancashire and Cumbria will be offered an unrivalled opportunity to gain external support and expertise from successful business leaders in the region.
The Advisory Board Programme has been set up to get businesses working together to improve productivity. Over the course of a full year, business leaders will have a chance to talk though their issues and challenges with a ‘board’ of successful senior managers from companies such as Peel Airports Group, Cisco and CYBG.
The Advisory Board programme is targeted at businesses who don’t yet have a formal board structure in place, but would welcome the chance to call on some non-executive director style input on issues such as transitioning leadership, new products and markets, planning for growth, dealing with risk or raising funds.
If your business would be interested in taking part in the Be the Business Advisory Board programme, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for expressions of interest is August 5th.
