Growing a business is about taking a fresh perspective, visualising what is possible and taking steps to seize opportunities. The Buckinghamshire Business First (BBF) Growth Advice service supports you to develop your people and bring them on the journey to achieve your growth aspirations.
Achieving sustainable positive results comes through a combination of over 12 hours of support, tailored to your needs over several months, starting with a one-to-one meeting with an experienced and knowledgeable Business Adviser, alongside a choice of exclusive masterclasses to cover the key areas that leaders need to master:
Strategic Planning Masterclass – create and understand strategic operational planning and thinking, develop strategies and plans to move you forward, delivered by experienced and approachable business people.
Digital Marketing Masterclass – develop customer engagement ideas and understand how to achieve success with your digital marketing that is right for your products and services.
Finance Masterclass – improve financial understanding and plans to support a successful business, an opportunity for non-finance people to learn and pose questions that you were afraid to ask.
Mastermind peer-to-peer groups - Meet like-minded business owners facing similar challenges.
Buckinghamshire Growth Champions – Build a support network with someone who has successfully grown their own business, and will offer you their time, and a listening, supportive ear to help bring out the best in you!
