Weighing Scales

 

 Background:

Weighing Scales Ltd sell, service, repair and calibrate all types of weighing equipment and weights. Our team of highly qualified engineers offer ISO9001 service to manufacturing industries, the NHS and universities throughout the UK.

Weighing Scales relocated to a new purpose built premises in January 2015 to facilitate expansion plans having out grown their previous premises. The new premises incorporate a new testing laboratory. We had a number of plans to grow the business. New products? New Staff? Marketing? In fact so many we didn’t have a clear strategy. We knew where we wanted to be in 3 years and vaguely how we were going to get there. This is where Boost Growth Mentoring came in……

Our intervention:  

Community & Business Partners matched us with a business mentor, Paul Aisthorpe of Imaginative Coaching. Paul worked with us for 12 hours to develop a clear business strategy (and this support was fully funded so didn’t cost us anything). We also attended the interactive Skills Assist workshop on effectively developing staff to beat the competition.

Early Impact:

Paul’s input was vital, we now have a clear pathway to our goal of growing our business 20% year on year for the next 3 years. In fact the mentoring has been so successful we intend to retain Paul’s services in the coming year.

Continued Support:

Community & Business Partners and Boost will continue to invite the business to the networking events and send them opportunities that may be of interest e.g. the HR Forum on March 25th 2015 where there will be over 100 people in attendance.

Client quote/testimonial:
