      Growth Track is a support service for high-growth businesses looking to increase market share, develop a new product or service, or enhance customer experience.

      If you’re thinking about growing your business, or think you need to review what you’ve already done, but want to talk it all through before you take the next step, this Growth Track package from TEDCO Business Support has been designed for you.

      What is it? 

      A bespoke one-to-one session with expert business advisor Alan Dodsworth followed by bespoke sessions and/or workshops on your chosen area of focus.

      Why might I need it? 

      When you started your business your plans were made, and the route was clear. But what happened after that? You may have encountered curve balls which knocked your well-laid plans sideways. Talking it through with a new face is sometimes all it takes to cast a new perspective on your way forward.

      What does the package include? 

      Workshops and one-to-one support to help you grow your business, whether that is by:

      1. adding new products or services,
      2. increasing your market share by exploring new routes to market
      3. exploring what is the best growth strategy for your business
      4. enhancing your customer experience.

      or you can join weekly workshops.
