The Growing Club

The Growing Club – A 12 month business growth programme for women running micro-businesses.


Running your own business is fantastic – it helps you to live a flexible life, fitting work commitments around busy personal lives whilst boosting the local economy. We have seen a rise in women setting up their own businesses in the UK.
There is clear evidence that businesses that use a business coach and have support structures in place have significantly higher growth success. As a single mum and business owner, Jane could not find a coach that really understood her needs and that resulted in the creation of The Growing Club.
So, you may be wondering if the programme is for you…..

• Have you been running a small business, or a not-for-profit organisation, for at least 12 months?
• Would you like to grow your business with a supportive group of peers?
If so, yes the Growing Club programme is most definitely for you!
Let us share some key details regarding this exciting programme with you:
