Get Set to Grow with BE-NE

Article excerpt

IT'S never been more important for businesses to broaden their horizons, seek out new markets and be prepared to take advantage of new opportunities. Business & Enterprise North East (BE-NE) delivers a wider and more comprehensive portfolio of support for businesses than ever before, all designed to help companies of all sizes and in all sectors to reach their full potential.

Business Link is the primary access point for business support services in the North-east and the gateway to many other key BE-NE services including the North East England Investment Centre (NEEIC) and the North East Service Provider Register (NEESPR).

The organisation employs a team of expert advisers who provide free, independent advice and guidance to help companies get off the ground and then go on to develop, grow and be the best that they possibly can.

Just one of the ways in which Business Link can support companies to grow and prosper is by providing advice and guidance on delivering an effective sales and marketing strategy.

The team of advisers work with businesses to identify opportunities to maximise sales; to help make sure they are promoting their products and services in the most effective manner; and to help them select the right service provider if they are in need of in-depth consultancy.

Another area where Business Link can support business growth is by providing advice and guidance on staff training and development.

Effective training can help build a competitive advantage and equip employees with the skills to drive a company forward.

Business Link advisers can help identify the training needs of a business and can provide advice on the most effective methods to address those needs.

Business Link also delivers a series of fully funded workshops designed to advise on potential areas of skills growth.

Chris Simpson, from Business Link, said: "We can provide a wide range of support to help your business become more innovative.

"Offering impartial advice, our team of advisers can act as a sounding board for new ideas and business development plans.

"They can also help to identify potential financial support that can help you embrace innovation."

Business Link''s wide range of events, workshops and seminars offer a great way for companies of all shapes and sizes to strengthen their operations and be well-positioned for growth.
