Business owners encouraged to 'go for growth'
Mindful of the challenges and opportunities facing ambitious SMEs in the South West, accountants and business advisers Dafferns have teamed up with Beers Solicitors to launch Growth Academy SW.
A South West-based accountancy firm and solicitors have joined forces to drive a new initiative to help SMEs thrive.
Dafferns and Beers Solicitors, who have offices in the South Hams and Plymouth, are launching the Growth Academy SW to take business owners and leaders away from the day-to-day running of their business to focus on their goals.
The Growth Academy will deliver a range of business development opportunities, including:
- Quarterly half-day workshops with the leaders and executives of other businesses, allowing skills and best practice to be shared;
- Monthly one-to-one coaching and mentoring, providing external accountability to keep business strategies and actions on track;
- Access to the Mindshop Online, a cloud-based learning, development and accountability platform. This has hundreds of business tools and diagnostics, and access to online courses covering a range of topics including business improvement, leadership development, team development, marketing and sales process, and change success.
Richard Miller, Partner at Dafferns, said:
“The business environment is adapting rapidly and leaders need to be ready for change”
“Growth Academy offers a fantastic blend of experienced coaching ans 24/7 access to online technologies to ensure strategies are challenged and accountability boosted”.
Growth Academy SW is being launched with a workshop at Beers Plymouth office on 7 June 2016.
The first session is free and will focus on change readiness and the next evolution of competitive advantage.
