Business Growth Programme Short Course

Designed specifically for the development of owner-managers, the Business Growth Programme helps you create the future you want for your business and for yourself.

As the UK's longest running programme for owner-managers looking to take their business to the next stage, the Business Growth Programme provides the highest level of expertise, experience and interactive engagement that traditional business courses or online resources are unable to offer.

What makes the programme so successful, in addition to structured modules and content, is the time dedicated to transforming knowledge into actions for your business, working directly with the BGP counsellors, peer-to-peer mentoring in small groups and invaluable interactions with experts and experienced business owners.

The BGP counsellors are central to the journey and play a key role in the development - and indeed the lives - of the participants that they mentor. In many cases the relationship does not end when the programme ends, but often continues well into the future, as does the bond formed between the delegates themselves.

Entry Requirements For This Course

To be considered for a place on the BGP, what we typically look for is owner-managers of businesses that have been in operation for 3 or more years, with a staff of 5 to 50 and a turnover between £0.5m and £20m. In some circumstances, we will also consider managing directors and other senior team members of privately owned businesses who have strategic control but not necessarily an ownership stake.

The BGP has a strong selection process that aims to ensure businesses that do come on the programme will see tangible benefits. Upon application you will first talk to an executive development advisor and if necessary may be referred to a BGP counsellor for further guidance.
