The Sussex Leadership Programme is an exclusive business support programme designed specifically for Sussex businesses who have a high potential for growth.

Delivered by Let’s Do Business Group, the course will address the core growth challenges founders and managerial teams face when looking to scale their business.

Let’s Do Business Group has over 20 years of experience driving business growth and has helped over 3500 entrepreneurs across the South East region to access finance and support. By attending this programme, you will enhance your capabilities, business skills and strategy to deliver benefits to your organisation and positively influence your workforce from week one.

Economic growth and productivity are closely linked to the success of a company’s growth potential in almost every economy, but only the very few manage to turn themselves into growth companies with the potential to make a difference to their economy.

Whether you are a micro-business (employ between 1- 10 people) or a small business (between 10-50), two of the main barriers to growth typically cited are: limited managerial skills to strategically lead a company as it becomes medium or even large and international and the second is a lack of access to capital.

Let’s Do Business Group is determined to support these SME’s to become potential growth champions in developing their leadership capabilities through the Sussex Leadership Programme; which has been designed to help high growth potential companies develop their organisation’s managerial skills, setting them up to move to the next stage of growth.

This is particularly important, during a time of economic uncertainty, that businesses with high potential for growth receive the right support to enable them to achieve their full potential.
