Up to £1000 Funding available to boost business in Leicestershire




Would you like to improve your business performance and work on the business, not in it?

Up to £1000 Leadership and management funding is available to support local business leaders seeking to develop those essential management skills required to compete and thrive effectively in today’s ever competitive environment.

Stephen Smith, CEO of EMB the leading enterprise and economic development company that delivers a range of business improvement services, including The Leadership and Management Advisory Service which administers the funding scheme across Leicestershire says: “Unfortunately people tend to cut training budgets in this kind of economic climate but actually it is more important to invest in yourself  to ensure the future success of your business. With funding available, it makes sense to find new, cost-effective ways of increasing efficiency and profitability and growth.”

Business benefits

  • Free Professional personal skills diagnostic
  • Up to £1,000 matched funding available (exclusive of VAT)
  • Review of the impact of the development on yourself and the business
  • Increased potential for your business to grow and thrive.

How it Works
A Leadership and Management  advisor will  meet with you and  carry out an analysis of your personal development needs linked to your business objectives and help to create a  personal development plan, with appropriate learning and development  opportunities  identified. You will then receive an agreement letter confirming the value of the funding payment will be issued. At this stage you can book and pay for your chosen development which has to commence within 90 days of your analysis

Support must be directed to the needs of the leader of the business only one application per business  can be made.

The Advisor will re-visit you following the start of your development and discuss its impact on yourself and  your business. They will collect your completed claim for reimbursement and proof of payment at that meeting.

Stephen Smith concludes: “It is proven that effective leadership can make the difference between survival and growth, and this fund will give vital support to keen, forward-thinking local entrepreneurs. We are delighted to offer this brand new package of support as part of a national drive to help local businesses grow.”

The fund is promoted directly to local social enterprises and businesses by the regional Leadership and Management Advisory Service. For more information, call 0845 894 8969 or email lmas@embltd.co.uk.
