Join us for the next 'Helping your business grow' breakfast event which will be held at the brand new venue at Ashton Old Baths in Tameside, and attendees will have an excellent opportunity to be some of the first to view this fantastic high tech business space.
This month we have two guest speakers who will talk about their business journey as well as the support they have received from the Business Growth Hub and how it has impacted their business.
Victoria Dollard, Managing Director, Mediskills Training, a medical company based in Tameside formed in late 2012. Victoria will talk about how her company achieved 388% year on year growth, alongside how her business evolved from a training provider to one that now has four divisions. With the help from the Hub they have become more focused and strategic across the company with an implemented vision, core values and a three year strategic plan.
Robin Page, Owner, Bake and Take has a strong background in retail franchising, with over 400 stores jointly opened with his business partner in their retail careers. Robin will talk about bringing the successful German self-service bakery company Backwerk's concept to the UK as Bake and Take with a large operation based in Ashton under lyne and how through support from the Hub's Access to Finance team has received funding from the investment organisation company Yingde.
You will also hear from Andrew Nickeas at Business Growth Hub, who will provide an update on the different types of support available from the Hub and how business can access this.
Our breakfast events are a great opportunity to understand how the Business Growth Hub can support your business, whether it is growing, a start-up or merely a great idea. There is also the chance to engage and network with the growing community of SMEs and partner organisations that work with the Business Growth Hub.
