As a small or medium business owner, where would you be without your business?
More importantly, where would your business be without you? The answer to which, no doubt, takes you back to the first question, ‘where would you be without your business?’
Many business owners tend to forget that their business reflects their own expertise and ability. The business is built upon their own knowledge and skills. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that by improving, building upon, and expanding the skills, expertise, and ability of the business owner, the business itself will improve, expand, and have a stronger foundation upon which to grow.
“Going it alone is an admirable but foolhardy and highly flawed approach to taking on the world.” Richard Branson, founder of Virgin
By accessing the services of The Cavendish Consortium group, you, as a small to medium business owner, can develop your business understanding and expertise. The Consortium sees the coming together of six of the largest enterprise agencies in England, each with over 30 years experience. These six agencies are among the most prominent not-for-profit social enterprises in the country.
Working in close partnership with a variety of organisations from the private, public and third sectors, The Cavendish Consortium has a revered reputation for achieving excellent results in business enterprise. Together with the National Enterprise Network, the Consortium partners are longstanding members of the business support community, being highly respected for their independent and impartial advice, and their impeccable moral integrity.
The services provided by Consortium members include financial advice, business planning, grant applications, training, advice on expanding overseas, networking solutions, and office space. As regional organisations themselves, each of the members has specific and invaluable knowledge of business sectors and needs in each region across England.
The important step for you as a business owner is to accept that you can actually benefit from some advice and help.
Richard Branson admits to having had help, advice and support along the way. In his book he writes,
“What do Larry Page, Steve Jobs and yours truly have in common? We’ve all received guidance from mentors. Yes, even the famously individually-minded Apple Founder got by with a little help, advice and support from time to time. No matter who you are, where you’ve come from, or what you have achieved, a good mentor is an invaluable asset in business…” (extract from ‘The Virgin Way’)
As mentors, the Cavendish Consortium partners make an invaluable asset to any business. Each has a proven track record in delivering help and advice to thousands of businesses across England.
So …… are you ready to accept that you and your business will benefit from the services offered by the Cavendish Consortium?
