Growth Hub invites applicants for new Exceed programme to help businesses achieve their goals

Date published: 05 February 2021

Medium and large-sized digital, creative and tech businesses in Rochdale can now profit from a new, fully-funded programme.

Exceed is designed so that everyone in the company - from senior leaders to key team members - can benefit from online modules that cover leadership, sales tactics, measurements and metrics, and productivity and efficiency.

The programme will be delivered by GC Business Growth Hub, part of The Growth Company and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Participants will also have access to workshops and peer-to-peer support events, plus virtual leadership tables with industry specialists.

Sarah Novotny, the Hub’s Digital, Creative and Tech Sector Business Support Lead, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for businesses that are hungry for accelerated success and need some additional help to get there.

“Digital, creative and tech specialists will give you the one-to-one support you need to get the most out of it, as well as enable you to tackle your specific business challenges.

“We are here to help you to thrive, make your vision a reality and get your business functions firing on all cylinders.”

Places are limited and eligible businesses are advised to apply early.
