MASTERING BUSINESS

October marked the launch of a series of events hosted in North East Lincolnshire delivered by the Bondholders organisation which are designed to help businesses to learn new skills in order to perform more competitively. The series opened with a business dinner at the Oaklands with guest speaker Nick Hewer from BBC 1’s Apprentice talking about his career working alongside Lord Sugar. The room was buzzing with the region’s business-folk eager to learn the secrets behind Sugar’s success in business. The messages were in fact very straightforward and simple:

  • Give your customers what they want!
  • Set clear goals but be flexible on how you get there.
  • Be ahead of the competition.

I think that whilst these are obvious lessons they serve as a reminder that it’s important not to allow complacency to set in on the back of success and continuously make time to re-evaluate and think about how you can improve, do more, do better for your customers. This is something we are very committed to in Seafox.

I was delighted to speak at the Accessing Finance event later in the month as part of the Mastering Business series which attracted over 20 businesses keen to find out more about the grants are available. My presentation covered the do’s and don’ts of writing a funding bid. The event also showcased a wide range of funds from research and development, training, capital grants and provided some useful tips to organisations. The feedback has been very positive and our phone has been ringing ever since, bravo North East Lincolnshire Mastering Business!
