Business in Tameside is on the up, and if an event held in Ashton last week is anything to go by, there is a real thirst for advice and support to help businesses grow. The ‘Planning for Growth’ event last Tuesday – 22 October, was held at the Tameside Centre for Enterprise, in Ashton’s St Petersfield business district. There was standing room only as over 50 local business people watched presentations on Planning For Growth delivered by David Wright of BSA Marketing, Growth Accelerator delivered by Sue Warburton of Winning Pitch, and Support Services delivered by Business Growth Hub The presentations were followed by a ‘Question and Answer’ Forum where a panel of business experts answered questions from the audience. Feedback from the event was excellent with several delegates making real commitment to taking action to grow their business directly as a result of what they had heard during the presentations.
"There is no question that businesses in Tameside are keen to grow. What they are looking for is some assistance in helping them make the right decisions for their own business. Events like this are just what we need to show people that high quality support is readily available and can be tailored to meet individual requirements." Phil Cowper, former Leader, Tameside Business Family and all-round advocate of business growth!
