Following the presentation given at the 11th February BHBPA meeting by Richard Butcher, Acting Partnership Manager & Growth Champion for the Coast to Capital Growth Hub, we thought it would be useful to share some information and contact details with members on our web site.
C2C’s services include capital grants, business diagnostics and signposting, support from subject experts and an escalator programme for growing businesses.
Here is a link to the C2C website, where there is a phone number and a contact form https://www.coast2capital.org.uk/growth-hub/ Richard Butcher is also perfectly happy for people to contact him in the first instance by email at Rbutcher211@gmail.com or 077251 72027.
Another point to realise is that BHBPA member Carolyn Bentley of CB Trade Support has for the past year been working as a freelance consultant on International Trade following many years as an International Trade Adviser for the Department of International Trade (perhaps better known to some by its previous name UKTI). Her website is www.cbtradesupport.co.uk mobile no 07713 085371. CB Trade Support is largely focused on supporting businesses across the county.
Like Richard, Carolyn is a Growth Champion Consultant for Coast to Capital and is well connected with most organisations offering support to local SMEs.
