FREE WhatsApp Group – Survive & Thrive

Heading up a business can feel a lonely job at the best of times – you can’t share your woes, concerns or conundrums with your team or clients.  At the moment, its more important than ever to surround yourself with some positive “can do” solution focused people.

So we’ve created an open WhatsApp group to provide all local business owners a place to ask questions, get advice, share ideas and strategies and help each other through this.  We will be regularly posting and adding helpful resource links on a daily basis.  To join this group email or call 01204 852705. Alternatively if you are looking at this page on your phone just click:
