What do people think?

The support the group received on each business’s USP was extremely helpful. The workshop was customised to our individual needs, and the information I learnt helped me to re-work my business plan.

This insightful workshop pushed me to think deeper on various aspects around marketing my business, which was a real benefit. Drilling down to find our true client base was done in a way that was effective and productive. This is often a difficult subject but I’ve come away with greater understanding and clarity.
