Growth Curve is an intensive and interactive leadership development workshop for business owners. During the programme, you will explore and develop the essential skills needed to create and implement business plans and achieve personal growth as a business leader.

After an initial one-to-one diagnostic meeting to look at where your business was before this pandemic and understand how it has been affected, you will have the opportunity to join a University masterclass.

These masterclasses will help you come up with strategies to stabilise your business, identify your priorities and objectives, and put yourself in the best possible position to achieve future growth.
