Would you benefit from the help of an experienced business consultant who can support you in getting your business back on track?

Following the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, many businesses are finding that they are facing difficulties and need expert advice and support – this is where we can help.

Re-Start to Growth is a free support initiative where you will have access to experienced and skilled experts to help assess, plan and restart your business through an agreed programme of intensive support.  This support comprises two full days with an experienced business consultant, which would be delivered over an agreed time period.

Re-Start to Growth can help you in a number of key areas including:

  • Strategic planning & Leadership support
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Operations
  • Financial advice
  • Skills and also Digital/IT

By pooling our expertise, we can help businesses to address their key challenges, providing essential guidance when and where it is most needed.  Our business advisors can help you decide if Re-Start to Growth is the most suitable scheme for you.

The Process

The Re-Start to Growth initiative starts with an initial discussion with one of our team, which identifies the biggest challenges your business is facing and the priorities for moving forward.  We will also assess the suitability of the support available.

The business expert assigned to you will draw up a plan of action, with some defined outputs and milestones to meet over a fixed period of time.  This will form the basis of an agreed package of support between the Growth Hub and the business.  Upon commencement, you will be supported by one of our team of experts for a fixed period and we can also provide access to other relevant support to aid recovery or re-establishment, if needed.

Our experts all have many years of experience across industry, from manufacturing, service sector through to finance and international operations and have the ability to look at your business with a fresh pair of eyes.

Restart to Growth+ (Plus)

If further support is required after the initial delivery, the business could access additional intensive support through Re-Start to Growth+. This aims to provide an additional 2 days of intensive support which would be delivered over an agreed period of time (limited to three months).

The Re-Start to Growth+ package is a total of 4 days support which can be delivered by any number of our Business Growth Specialists.
