The Business Growth System
Our systemised approach to business growth is an evolution after educating and supporting over 1000 students to plan for, launch, promote and manage their own business via our Small Business Management Course. In that time we realised that job seekers need a course to learn the full range of skills required to manage a business but business owners need more than that.
Business owners need advisers, coaches and other people around them to make their business a success, whether a new venture or an existing business.
Our services are built on the process we apply in our courses so you can be confident that the work, research and learning you do will lead to new strategies to help you grow and manage the various aspects of your business.
We offer low cost course support for the Startup Course to fixed project-based course and mentoring so you can not only progress through a structured learning program but have access to a mentor who’ll review your work, be available for telephone conversations and provide guidance based on their own experiences as well as those of our academic board.
