Leadership, Skills & Resources
We have long understood that the single biggest factor that affects the success or otherwise of a business is the leadership and management of that business.
Business Financial Management
We know that for Glasgow's economic prospects to flourish, its SMEs must be empowered to grow.
Design Thinking
Taking a human centered approach to businesses enables business owners to understand and create solutions from their client’s perspective, putting human needs at the centre of what they do.
Business Innovation
Business innovation: new ideas, new process, new services and new and improved products all with one common goal - to boost the bottom line.
Internationalisation
We know international trade can contribute hugely to your business’s increased productivity.
Digital Development and Innovation
The digital sector is one which accelerates at great speed. 
Business Resilience
Business resilience is a topic which involves diving into the darker depths of risk.
