GrowthAccelerator South West Coach Event 19 March 2015

San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We would like to invite you to the Business Development coach Networking event on 19th March, for coaches who work in Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire areas. This uniquely designed networking event will not only provide you with valuable networking time with your fellow GrowthAccelerator coaches and Business Growth Managers, but will help to de-mystify the new GrowthAccelerator contract, which is now incorporated as part of the Business Growth Service. This will help you to understand what the proposed changes will mean for you, as coaches.
During the morning, there will also be a couple of short presentations to enlighten and inform, including one of our GrowthAccelerator companies, Voiceprint. In this short presentation, Kevin Eyre will introduce VoicePrint, outline some research findings and offer some provocative propositions on the world of coaching. We also welcome Jim Wheeler from PGI, who will discuss cyber risks to sme’s.
Our meeting will be held in the amazing Light and Dark studios at the Arnolfini.
