Client Feedback from a previous Busines Health Check session

"I contacted the Growth Hub for a business mentoring session with Paul Humphreys via the EventBrite app. This 90 meeting was free for me and the reason I booked it was that I felt that I was at a standstill and needed a little guidance as where to go next. I am an ex teacher launching a brand new e-safety and IT Training business and needed some reassurance that I was heading in the right direction as it was all new to me. Paul assured me that my business idea was viable and had legs! He put my mind at rest that I was on the right track. He also pointed my towards the Digital Growth Hub. Here you are able to access countless fantastic courses so that you are skilled up in the various digital marketing avenues needed to get your name out there. So far I am now well up on my SEO, I am ready to launch my email marketing campaign in January and have already started blogging. I am booked in for a few more courses but I now feel much more confident to launch the business in January." Sally Davies, Director, JumpstartIT Training Services Ltd

This event is part-funded via the European Regional Development Fund, therefore we are required to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise. There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed on the day. One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise, the second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000. If you have previously completed these forms at a D2N2 Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
