BWS Programme For Growth

The BWS Programme For Growth is an exciting project in partnership with the Royal Bank of Scotland, designed to encourage and support entrepreneurs at the crucial growth stage of their business. The aim is to boost prosperity and ultimately create jobs.

Running and growing a business can be a lonely place and at this stage it is easy to lose momentum. By the end of the final seminar on day three you will have the opportunity to present to a panel of specialists in business who can offer personalised advice to help your business. You can then concentrate your efforts on the areas where you have the best chance of success and go forward confidently to expand your business.

It is the ideal opportunity to take some time out to work on your business, rather than in your business.
