What our clients say

It’s been a privilege to be able to learn and be guided by my Business Advisor. EnterprisingYou has made a huge difference to the speed of growth and ultimately the success of my business.

Nicola Hill, Self-employed Maths Tutor

I have to say, I originally signed up for the EnterprisingYou programme with a heavy pinch of doubt. I am now extremely pleased that I ignored that doubt as the training and support have already paid dividends.

Steve Sweeney, Salford Double Glazing

My Business Advisor supported me through every aspect of the early days of my business. I felt I always had someone to turn to. My business would not be where it is today without her. Thank you very much for all the support.

Alison Gilbert, Self-employed Proofreader

The course today was very helpful and insightful. I went in not sure what to expect but was made to feel welcome and involved. As someone who suffers from disability and anxiety, I can honestly say that this is the calmest experience with new people I have had in MANY years.

C Rooney

After attending the recent workshop, I have acquired substantial insights and knowledge pertinent to start-ups, which I believe will be instrumental in the progression of my entrepreneurial journey. The workshop meticulously highlighted potential challenges and emphasized the best practices in navigating the start-up landscape.
