Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to our August Newsletter

Onwards and Upwards Post Brexit.

This month we are looking at Marketing


I hope you enjoy Chapter 6 on Marketing. There are some real insights about how you can attract more high margin business of the type that can help you really scale your business, have fun and minimise risks.

My thanks to Paul Shadbolt of Lloyds Bank for setting up a meeting with their Investment Team. As we discussed in the July Newsletter, we are going to publish a guide on how to source finance for your business, from working capital to long term investment.

Building on our theme of "Innovation in a Changing World", we are looking at "Success from Uncertainty". It has often been the case that a business owner's experience of looking for help to grow their businesses has been time consuming and frequently a waste of that time.

So we are looking to identify paths to follow, with check points and questions for you to answer at each stage. This way we hope to improve your chances of success from small to greater than 75%. That is to say,
"If you really want to do it -  Follow this path, minimise time costs, minimise downside risk, get a result"

We plan to make these and other guides on Export etc, available through the Shop, which clearly needs updating, so we are looking at that as well.

If you would like to contribute to those guides, then please get in touch. 01707 373700.
We are looking for businesses with real experience of providing real solutions, who are looking for new customers.

Indeed that brings me nicely onto our e-Publishing Group.
The First Wednesday of each month. CLICK HERE to book.
