Event description


What is Going for Growth:

It is a fully funded 3 day residential business training course. The aim of the weekend is to give you focused time to work on your business rather than in it. You will network with like minded businesses and not only grow your network but grow your business as well.

You will work on ways to grow your business and develop a strategy for the future. This is approximately two thirds of the weekend and you will use your own business as the case study for each activity.

The remaining time will be spent on improving your digital marketing. All the social media training is delivered from a marketing angle rather than a technical angle, so don’t worry no one will be left behind! We suggest you bring a laptop or tablet with you for this part of the course.

You will receive a qualification for each of the above elements so it is mandatory to fill in the work books on the weekend.

Here's what some of our past delegates have said about the course:

“The course has helped me increase sales by 131% on last year. I couldn’t recommend this course enough” - Kim

“I have a much clearer idea of how to move my business forward, and I am more confident now.” - John

“The level of training has been very informative, professional yet relaxed enough to embrace and understand. I feel every element provided benefit within my business.” - Susan

Who can attend?

As the course is fully funded via EU funding, there are some eligibility rules on who can attend. You must be a trading business but can be registered as a sole trader, partnership, limited company, social enterprise, charity or franchise. All sectors can come along, whether you have a kitchen table empire or employ a workforce, you will benefit from the course.

If you are based in North Yorkshire, you need to employ less than 50 employees (unless you are in the Tourism sector, renewables, food manufacture, construction, engineering, third sector, or Health & social care and then there is no upper limit).

If you are based in Teesside, you need to employ less than 249 employees.

If you meet this criteria then the course is FULLY FUNDED including your accommodation, food, training and qualifications through European funding.

Why attend?

To have 3 full days dedicated to the development of your own business is the main aim of the weekend.

  • You will leave with an action plan that is practical for your own business,

  • you will be inspired by the other people you have met,

  • you will have the experience of others to help solve problems you may be facing,

  • you will be motivated to succeed.
