About the Project

  • Growth Curve is an intensive programme for business owners that will help you strengthen your leadership skills. This will allow you to stabilise your business in the current challenging environment, and help set your organisation on track for attainable long-term growth.

The programme has been updated to support businesses at this time, taking into consideration the effect coronavirus has had on the business environment.

This includes building relationships with clients who have been ‘recruited’ or referred to the project, taking a holistic approach to diagnosing their business needs, action planning including recommending appropriate support through the programme and maintaining on-going relationships with a portfolio of SMEs participating on the programme.
