Kendal firms offered free expert advice on how to grow their business

Written by on 27/02/2024

The owners of firms in Kendal are being offered the opportunity to gain expert advice about how to grow their businesses.

The free ‘Six steps to grow your business’ seminar is being organised and funded by the town’s Business Improvement District (BID).

It will be hosted by business growth coach Rob MacDonald, of Action COACH Lancaster.

“Those who attend will walk away with energy, vision and focus to grow their business and strategies to build profits right away,” said Rob.

“They will also have ideas to get more done in less time and will have learned ways to communicate and motive more effectively with their team.”

The session will be held at Stricklandgate House at Stricklandgate, Kendal, from 9.30am-12.30pm on Monday, March 11. The seminar is free to Kendal BID members and costs £40 for others.

“People who attend will leave with proven ideas on how to increase their business profits and make their team more efficient,” said Rob.

“They will learn to work less and enjoy life more, leaving the seminar with a clearer direction and new tools to achieve their goals faster.

“We will also show them how to attract, retain and motivate to get the very best cost-effective team.”

Peter Brendling, the manager of Kendal BID, said the BID had organised online training sessions in the past but this was the first time he was aware of that face-to-face training of this kind had been offered.

“A lot of businesses are finding times difficult at the moment and anything Kendal BID can do to help and improve business for owners has to be a good thing,” said Mr Brendling. To book a place on the seminar email or telephone 01539 886622.

Kendal BID is a not-for-profit organisation, which aims to improve Kendal town centre, support local businesses and boost the local economy.
