Help to Grow: Management – A Valuable Resource for Small Business Owners
Swansea-based company ITeC Digital Training’s managing director, Helen Necrews, faced challenges when it came to developing her management skills to support her education-based company’s growth.
However, she found the solution through Help to Grow: Management, which she discovered via social media.
She chose to take the course through Cardiff University and has since seen great success.
Benefits of the Course
The Help to Grow: Management course appealed to Helen because it was only a 13-week commitment that covered all areas of business management in 12 modules. The course’s schedule enabled her to manage her busy business while growing and learning at the same time. The mentorship she received through the course enabled her to bounce ideas off someone in a similar position and receive genuine advice.
Confidence to Implement Digital Transformation
Helen’s mentor also gave her the confidence to implement a digital transformation programme, as her business was looking to introduce cloud technology. The Help to Grow: Management course helped affirm that she was taking the right course of action, and it was an integral tool in the process of purchasing the right infrastructure for data to ensure security and safety.
Moving Business Forward
Off the back of her experience with the course, Helen now feels that she has the tools, skills, and confidence to move her business forward. She has been attending Help to Grow: Management alumni events to continue learning from a shared knowledge pool and network with other businesses.
Helen highly recommends the Help to Grow: Management programme to small businesses that want to grow but are not sure where to go. The programme is available to any business operating for a year or more, in any sector other than charity, that employs between five and 249 people. Participants must be decision-makers who are prepared to complete every session.
Helen’s experience with Help to Grow: Management is a testament to the value of mentorship and professional development for small businesses. The course’s commitment of only 13 weeks and comprehensive coverage of all areas of business management makes it an accessible and valuable resource for decision-makers in small businesses. The opportunity to learn from a shared knowledge pool and network with other businesses through alumni events is a valuable bonus for ongoing growth and development. The Help to Grow: Management programme is an important resource for small businesses looking to develop their management skills and move their business forward.
