Are you worried about the impact the Coronavirus is having on your business?

We are finding ourselves in extraordinary times with businesses facing new and challenging situations; either coping with sudden excess demand for goods and services or temporary closure and low demand, not to mention the associated staffing issues, sickness, care responsibilities and remote working…  The pandemic is impacting the economy and what you do about it now will determine who will succeed and come out the other end in a much better position. If you are feeling a little overwhelmed by the rapid economic changes and the impact it is having on your business, we can help.

We know many local businesses are in turmoil as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and do not know what to do for the best. The environment we’re operating in is changing daily – and so are the consequences for your business.  Whilst demand for some goods and services shrinks, the need for others emerges but one thing is certain, ignoring it and hoping it will go away, is not an option. Now is the time to get some clarity for your business. We believe it is critical to support as many businesses as possible and so we are offering free of charge coaching calls to help you get some clearer thinking on the most pressing matters in your business or indeed any general advice on what to do next to get through this. You can book a free thirty minute coaching call by contacting us at or ringing 07795 046345 or clicking below.
