I hadn’t until yesterday when I was speaking with Johno Harris one of Oxfordshire’s Growth Managers. And the opportunity runs out 31st March 2015!
For 600 businesses with a turnover of £250k to £2 million and not already on the scheme, the government is funding a research project called the Growth Impact Pilot. If your business fits the criteria, you have a 50/50 chance of being offered either:-
1. A grant for leadership and development training (of £2000 per senior manager, not matched funded, just a full grant!)
2. Full enrolment into the growth accelerator programme with no joining fee, other than the £700 VAT which you, of course, reclaim.
Check it out here.
If you are even slightly considering signing up for the Growth Accelerator scheme and fall within the criteria – why would you not try and sign up for free?! You need to be quick - the pilot ends 31st March 2015 for delivery of the service within 3 months.
If you would like me to learn how you can access the leadership training through Priddey Marketing, or you would like me to introduce you to Johno directly, just call me on 07891 400 305 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
