Here’s what Peter Davies, of James Lister and Sons Limited, a participant from our previous cohort, has to say to about the programme:

“Despite my initial scepticism as to whether I would gain anything from Help to Grow Management, both because I already had reasonable experience of business management and because it was being presented by "academics", I can honestly say that the course is of immense benefit. My worries that it would be too heavy on theory were totally unfounded – yes, of course, some of that is explained, but it is done in such a practical way, linked to real life business examples, and to our own situations, that it truly becomes useful. To get the full benefit you do need to be sure that you can commit a few hours each week for the programme sessions themselves, applying the ideas to your own business, and then attending the peer group discussions, but if you do that it is hard to imagine that you will not find some real opportunities and ways to grow your company. It is comforting to know that you are not alone in tackling the challenge of finding ways forward! So far, everyone who has presented to, or worked with us, on the course have had real-life business experience themselves and have some practical understanding of many of the issues that most of us are facing.”

“I would strongly recommend this programme to anyone who is trying to grow their business.”
