The Step Change for Growth programme is a perfect example of what FEO stands for. Entrepreneurs give their time and experience freely to help each other succeed. This helps to create new jobs and therefore makes a difference to the local economy.
The Step Change for Growth programme sees small groups of established business owners attend six interactive half-day monthly sessions focused on self-improvement and company performance and profitability.
Previous Step Change for Growth participants have increased sales and profit margins as well as creating, on average, three more jobs each after completing the programme.
Here are a selection of comments from participants:
“I now have the confidence and the tools to make sure that growth happens.”
“I have totally changed and it has definitely helped me to focus and be enthused by the future ahead.”
“My attitude has changed towards the importance of making decisions and critical changes in my business.”
