Expansion for Business Growth Masterclasses with Project Backing

10 Aug

Local business growth masterclass for Swansea businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs goes from strength to strength, with sponsorship from the BUCANIER project.

Supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme, BUCANIER has teamed up with Swansea professionals for the next cycle of masterclasses commencing this Autumn at The Beacon Centre for Enterprise.

Founded to assist the Swansea business community and hosted by a panel of seasoned business growth specialists from Gerald Thomas Chartered Accountants, Thomas Carroll Group plc, Lloyds Bank, Finance Wales, Douglas-Jones Mercer Solicitors and Business Wales, the masterclasses consist of a series of interactive sessions which have been specifically developed to help individuals overcome the hurdles associated with successfully growing a business.

The Business Growth Masterclass identifies and addresses specific challenges faced by business owners who are on an upward trajectory including barriers to growth, innovation, accessing new markets, developing management skills, legal considerations, financing and future security.

Chris Jenkins, Associate Partner at Gerald Thomas Chartered Accountants, said;

“We launched the Business Growth Masterclass two years ago after identifying a need for a hub where clients and local business owners can benefit from professional advice and assistance in growing their business.

The sessions are designed to identify the areas often overlooked when growing a business and provide practical solutions that will work.”

Rob Jones MBE, Group Development Director at Thomas Carroll Group plc, added;

“Our clients often tell us that they feel isolated when running their own business. The Business Growth Masterclass provides the opportunity to discuss real business issues in a confidential, yet constructive environment.

The masterclasses are focused so the attendees can gain valuable accounting, legal, insurance and financing knowledge that will make the day to day management of their business more informed.

The response to the first two cycles was excellent and we urge local businesses and business owners to get involved with the next series of masterclasses at the Beacon.

Time is precious when running any business, by working together we aim to ensure Swansea businesses grow and be successful.”
