The latest in our series of breakfast events takes place in Wigan, and will showcase how two very different businesses have benefitted from the support of the Business Growth Hub and partners at Wigan council.
Dr Sarah Leeds, a director ofDC Voltage Gradient, will explain how the high-tech company, which provides services to pipeline industries, has developed a new strategy and structure which has resulted in an increase in turnover, productivity and sales, both in the UK and internationally.
True Colours Inclusive CIC is a very different organisation that works with people with autism. But, as directors Marian Milling and Michelle Campbell explain, business support has helped them develop their financial management acumen, refine their business model and enable wider skills development.
Other speakers include:
Hilary Centeleghe, Senior Growth Manager, will detail the different types of support available from the Hub.
Wigan Council will explain how they work closely with the Hub to support the growth plans of Wigan businesses.
Bookings are now open. As we expect demand to be high, we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
