Supporting your business ambitions

You have the small business, Be the Business can help you develop and improve.  

Small business is our business

Did you know that small businesses account for 99.9% of businesses in the UK? You’re contributing towards the largest community in the economy. 

Since 2017, we’ve been supporting small business leaders reach their potential. Why? Because when small businesses succeed, we all enjoy the benefits.  

Our programmes have been tried and tested by business leaders like you. This support has helped other business leaders grow their company, improve their competitiveness and unlock their productivity potential.

A lightbulb moment

Why does productivity matter?

Productivity is like a lightbulb. A new 5w LED lightbulb generates more light than a traditional 60w halogen bulb because it uses energy more efficiently. While a 60w halogen bulb wastes energy generating heat as well as light, the 5w LED bulb uses less energy to generate even more light.

A productive business uses less but creates more.

By the numbers
