Who’s delivering this Business Strategy workshop?

Richard Gray, Consultant Coach at Canoe – www.wearecanoe.com. I’m a Mindshop accredited Business Growth Facilitator and mBIT Coach who helps businesses grow profitably and sustainably. As a business owner, I know growing your business can be a challenge but made easier when supported by a capable business coach. I believe all business owners should have access to business coaching, and practicing what I preach, I have one myself. Prior to my business growth coaching work, I’ve run businesses in many diverse industries including Transport and Logistics, Recruitment, and Technology. I have also managed business growth programs in Gloucestershire and the South West, involving the support, development, and growth of hundreds of ambitious businesses. My coaching techniques are based firmly around accountability to achieve consistent and timely results, delivering a more time and cost-effective process.


Where is it held?

This course is held at The Growth Hub in Gloucester; a centre of support and learning for growing businesses, based at Oxstalls Campus at the University of Gloucestershire.

This venue is fully accessible. Both light refreshments and lunch are provided, and parking is available on-site (for £2.55 for the day by card). Please let us know of any dietary requirements at least 5 days in advance of the workshop by emailing startandgrow@glos.ac.uk.

Staying Covid-19 safe

It is advised that you carry out a lateral flow test before entering the University campus. Wearing a mask on campus is once again mandatory. Please ensure you are wearing a mask unless seated. These measures help to keep yourself and others safe.


What do people think?

Prior to working with Richard, I was sceptical about the benefits of a business coach. However, his support has been the key driver in our business successes over the past 18 months. Richard has not only supported the growth of the business, but also myself as the owner and my staff too. His support and advice assisted me to in being nominated as finalist for young business person of the year and vastly improved my confidence in all aspects of business. Nephos and I couldn’t recommend Richard more highly for any ambitious business looking to grow.

Richard has been fundamental in accelerating Bloxham PR to the next level. We have experienced unprecedented growth over the past 12 months. Richard has not only been a catalyst for this growth, but also allowed the pace of change to remain manageable through the knowledge and expertise he passes on through the coaching sessions. Working with Richard has most notably helped me to strategize, plan for the future, effectively manage resource, and productise our service offering – all integral aspects to future proofing the business, improving operational efficiencies and ultimately making the business more profitable.”
