The Productivity Programme

Ambition is great. Action is even better.

The Productivity Programme gives you the tools, energy and confidence you need to take your business to the next level. Get six months of personalised support with our unique programme for small businesses.

Be the Business has one goal: to solve Britain's productivity problem. And we want you to get involved. ​

Since 2017 we've helped British small and medium-sized businesses produce a productivity uplift of £500m.

We did this by connecting them to the kind of expertise and experience crucial to finding productivity improvements that quickly add up to big impacts.

Now it’s your turn to boost your productivity.

How does it work?

Five male chefs in chef's whites and blue aprons gather around a brown table for a meeting.

Your own advisory board for six months

Made up of senior professionals from highly successful companies, independent consultants or even retirees with long, illustrious careers behind them.

Over four 90 minute meetings, your board will get to understand your challenges and share in-depth expertise in topics like finance, marketing, operations, sales and HR. We’ll take care of all of the admin. So you can focus entirely on achieving your goals.

Two one-to-one mentoring sessions

As you uncover more about your business’s strengths and weaknesses, particular challenges will surface that need attention. 1:1 sessions allow you to tackle these challenges head-on.

Work directly with a member of your advisory board. Get into the details, ask all the difficult questions and hone the skills you need for success.

Access to online peer sessions

A chance to meet and learn from other small business leaders facing similar challenges to yours. With the guidance of our facilitator, you’ll compare notes, share successes and explore ideas with peers and guest experts.
