Join us for the next 'Helping your business grow' breakfast event which will be held on Wednesday 14 September at the striking and contemporary Pier Centre in Wigan.
This month our guest speaker is Dave Grime, managing director of Glazing Systems & Installations, a business established in October 2013 to supply glazed roof lights to the commercial, retail, education and health sectors.
Dave will talk about his business journey and how, developing a sales strategy focused on the company’s core USP resulted in an increase in sales of close to a £1m. He will also explain how improving profitability and identifying new markets has increased the company’s capacity for future growth.
Dave also has first-hand experience of working with the Business Growth Hub, and will be sharing his experiences of how this support benefitted the company and helped create eight new jobs.
You will also hear from the Hub’s Jo Walker, who will provide an update on the fully-funded support that’s available and how you can access it.
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 a chance to engage and network with the growing community
