The University of Portsmouth, alongside the Isle of Wight Council and Brightbulb Design, recently launched The Business Boost programme created to help businesses with a boost of real-world knowledge, delivering an action plan for future business growth.
As a result, The University of Portsmouth has just announced its first graduates from the first 2 cohorts. The businesses that have taken part have given praise to the intimate nature of the course, where lecturers could really get under the skin of everyone’s business to give targeted advice to lead to future growth.
Sally Chaucer, Managing Director of The Water Mill at Calbourne, said:
“The Business Boost courses on the Isle of Wight were perfect for me and my business. It was face-to-face learning that was clear and helpful, with professional guidance and support throughout.”
