“The Boost Your Business weekend gave me the opportunity to step back and reevaluate the business, highlighting the need for Social Media streams and the importance of digital presence”
“I went to an awesome residential training weekend called #BoostYourBusiness funded by the EU's European Social Fund. The course content was good, but the other delegates were amazingly supportive. So many good ideas to take away with me, and some very useful business contacts. Thanks to all those who enabled the programme to go ahead”
“I did find the weekend very informative, I didn’t think it was for me in the beginning but soon discovered that there were lots of little bits of information that when I put them together made perfect sense to me as a business owner. I have been able to move forward quite quickly with my plans to increase my business and embrace the challenge ahead. I do think that your course has helped me recognise my weakness and put into perspective the route I now need to take and that for me personally I now feel my journey can continue with positive results.”
“I have cleared out some of my non profitable (for me) businesses and handed them over to another company whose owner was on the course. They are, in fact, in a meeting now with one of my ex-contracts. This has been the best decision for my business enabling me to concentrate on what is important to move my main business forward.”
“If the course is running again I would love for my colleagues to be able to attend. I feel the course could enhance their personnel needs within the work place but also to increase the business turnover.’”
“I found the course to be informative and enjoyable. The lessons covering ‘cover letters’ and ‘CV’s’ were a good refresher for me. Team working and how teams work are always good subjects to discuss. Interactive lessons are always interesting as you see how other people interact.”
