We have written business plans for 200 organisations and helped them secure government contracts, grants and new business.

Business navigation and networking

We have offered networking opportunities to 1000 clients in London and the South East.

Introducing clients to each other has proved highly effective:

One of our customers - a training company – saw their income increase by over £360,000 in 18 months as a direct result of our advice and with income derived from a Government funded contract we helped them negotiate.


  • We have helped our clients secure government contracts
  • We have helped our clients win bids
  • We have devised and facilitated two entirely new training courses in partnership with our clients, and helped them find venues, clients and funding for these courses which have now run successfully over the past 12 months.
