The business school for small businesses

Claire Witz and Mark Balllett of GrowthSteps in Tunbridge WellsGrowthSteps is a Tunbridge Wells-based business school for small businesses in Kent and Sussex.  It’s run by Mark Ballett and Claire Witz – between us we’ve set up, owned and advised lots of businesses of varying sizes and types. We’ve spent years figuring out and mastering all those skills you’ll need too, enjoying lots of successes and learning valuable lessons on the way.
