Following the success of the Digital Track Programme, we’re rolling out the next level business support package GROWTH TRACK.

If you’re thinking about growing your business, or think you need to review what you’ve already done, but just want to talk it all through before you take the next step, then this package has been designed just for you.

5 ways to promote sustainability in your organisation

What is it? A bespoke one-to-one session with expert business advisor Alan Dodsworth followed by bespoke sessions and/or workshops on your chosen area of focus.

Why might I need it? When you started your business your plans were made, and the route was clear. But what happened after that? You may have encountered curve balls which knocked your well-laid plans sideways. Talking it through through with a new face is sometimes all it takes to cast a new perspective on your way forward.

What does the package include? Workshops and one-to-one support to help you grow your business, whether that is by:

  1. adding new products or services,
  2. increasing your market share by exploring new routes to market
  3. exploring what is the best growth strategy for your business
  4. enhancing your customer experience.

or you can join us on weekly workshops.

Remember time is limited, so choose the area you’d like to focus on carefully.


How to access this support

This special package is only available to trading businesses in Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside and Northumberland. Simply click the ‘Apply for Growth Track’ button above or below and complete the form.

The number of sessions available is limited. To put your name in the hat, you must apply using the Claim my Package button below. Our team will then contact you to discuss further.

Apply today so we can review your application and let you know if it’s been successful in due course.

What happens after that? We will let you know if your application has been successful. If so, we’ll introduce you to Alan Dodsworth and you’ll agree a way forward from there. If you’re not successful on this occasion, we’ll keep you in mind for future cohorts.
