This afternoon we had the pleasure of Roma Bhomwick's company as she joined us to discuss and update us on the news from the world of Business on our regular feature. Tonight she will be covering the Retailer of the Year Awards held at the Albans Arena, interviewing and talking to winners. She also talked about the FSB Small Business Year Awards as a previous guest on the show was a winner! The nominations for this year are the 'Specialist Retailer', 'Fashion Retailer', 'Cafe and Coffee Shop', 'Food and Drink', 'Hair and Beauty' and friend of the show Dixies Cupcakery are nominated for an award this year!
Roma also told us about the Growth Accelerator. This is a programme designed to help small-medium enterprises grow through funding and funded coaching in business. A small business qualifies as a business with below 250 employees, or has a yearly income of below £4,000,000. The course costs a small amount, as it is heavily subsidized and is dependent on business size, the price ranges from £600 - £1,500. There is more information on the website www.growthaccelerator.com where there is a self assesment form to check whether your business is applicable to the course.
