Reasons to attend a Business Growth Event

  • It's a FREE event and an opportunity to discover more about the longest running and most successful Business Growth Programme (BGP)

  • You will take away key, actionable growth strategies and insights from our 30-year history, including our '10 Step Guide to Profitable Growth'

  • Meet with past participants of the programme, business owner/managers that have been there and done it, discover how they achieved their business ambitions and goals

  • Network with a room of like-minded individuals as well as our team of business growth experts, share your challenges and successes.

Are the events right for you?

If you are a business owner/manager and you want to grow your business, then this is for you.

Ideally, your business will have a turnover of £0.5m-£20m, you will have been established over 3 years and you will employ 5 or more full-time staff.

Examples of business situations that will benefit from our event:

  • You have experienced sudden growth and need to manage it effectively

  • The business has grown to a certain point and you are struggling to make the next step

  • You are looking to grow the business as part of an exit strategy

  • You run or will be running the family business and you are looking at succession planning

Do I have to attend a Business Growth Event to book a place on the Business Growth Programme?

No, the events are a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, take away some learning and carry out some fact finding, they are not an essential element to booking your place on BGP. If you think the Programme is right for you and you want to fast track the process, please contact our Client Relationship Manager, Sharon Kennedy (+44 (0) 1234 758122).

BGP Testimonials

"After 16 years of trading, the business has doubled in value over the last 18 months. Our growth and profits are all up versus the corresponding period last year. That in its self is a remarkable achievement. I owe all of this to the BGP. It is and will probably remain the single best investment decision I have ever made."

Tony Lowes (BGP 2015), Managing Director - Leversedge Telecom Services Ltd.

“The BGP was a revelation! We were learning from real business challenges and identifying real opportunities for our own business. Go Ape is now one of the UK’s 100 fastest growing independently owned businesses. It wouldn’t have happened without the BGP.”

Tristam Mayhew (BGP 2006 & 2010), Founder and Chief Gorilla - Go Ape

“Just by putting into action the ideas we gathered at the initial Briefing session before the programme started more than covered the cost of the BGP itself.”

Martyn Curley & Steve Oldbury, Directors - Bidwriting.com

“BGP challenges every assumption you ever made about your business and uncovers the real areas to work on. Anybody who is serious about their business will find BGP well worth the investment.”

Angus Thirlwell, Co-founder - Hotel Chocolat

“BGP is having a huge impact; we have changed the basic structure of how the business works and cut costs by 28%. We’ve had the best February we’ve ever had since starting the business – it’s 110% up on this time last year!”

Geeta Sidhu-Robb, CEO & Founder - Nosh Detox Delivery
