What is Help to Grow Management?

Kingston Business School's Help to Grow Management course has been helping business owners and leaders boost their business performance, resilience and long-term growth for over a year, with over 300 participants since its inception.

Designed specifically for small and medium sized enterprises and delivered by expert lecturers and facilitators at the business school, the 12-week course is 90% funded by the government.

Key topics covered include strategy and innovation, digital adoption, marketing, branding, high performing workplace and finance.

Online study is combined with peer-to-peer networking and support, as well as in-person case study workshops to help apply the knowledge learnt. You also have your own business mentor to help grow your business.

By the end you will have developed a specific Growth Action Plan to help strengthen your business's future.
