Boost Your Business: growth and scaling up

boost your business

By Shirley Hermiston, business support manager

There are many different strategies to grow a business. Experts suggest that you have to trial different strategies and even fail in your attempts before you learn how to successfully grow and scale up.

Sometimes entrepreneurs don’t know their growth potential, and in today’s world, who can blame them? There’s so much to be aware of, especially for a start-up business. But having overcome the risks and challenges of starting a business, the owner’s attention turns to how they can win new business and expand their customer base.

Learning is not just about being told something and having that knowledge stored somewhere in the brain before being typed up and never to be seen again; it’s about putting that knowledge to the test.

Lifelong learning has never been as important as it is now. The business goalposts keep changing but we can all stay on top of our game by continually increasing our skills as an effective way to grow.

Here at the BIC we want to provide the environment for businesses to succeed and we’re working with the North East Enterprise Agency Limited (NEEAL) to bring businesses together to learn new skills and plan for their growth.

We are offering businesses a unique development opportunity by hosting a three-day residential course called ‘Boost Your Business.’ The course will help business owners and managers develop key skills and knowledge. During the three-day course participants will learn many key practical skills including digital promotion for business, understanding social media, data protection, tender writing and many more business skills that can transform a business. You’ll also come away with two recognised enterprise qualifications!

The event also gives you the opportunity to meet and network with 30-50 other local business people.

Each course is fully funded and will be held at locations across the North East with accommodation and meals included.
