The Business School for Small Businesses in Kent & Sussex

Do you run your own business?

Running your own business is often exciting and incredibly rewarding, but also sometimes daunting, exhausting and completely overwhelming. Not only do you need to be an expert in the services or products that your business is offering to your customers, but you also need to master a whole host of other skills to run the business itself, otherwise it just won’t succeed.

That’s where GrowthSteps comes in. We’re a business school in Tunbridge Wells for small business owners just like you. We provide a range of events and services to help your business flourish and grow including:

  • Networking events with business advice talks
  • Workshops on a wide range of topics
  • Tailored business advice and coaching.

How GrowthSteps works

All businesses fall within 5 growth stages throughout their development from starting-up to selling-up. So we’ve designed 5 core workshops to help you master the exact core business skills you’ll need for that stage. And our workshops are designed to work together, so that when you’re ready, we can help you master the next stage in your business’s development without any gaps.

Click here to find out what stage you’re at and see how we can help you.

Depending on your business there will probably be other, more specific skills or knowledge you’ll need, for example, Basic Business Finance, Social Media, Marketing Strategy, or perhaps how to franchise or sell your business. We can help you there too.
