After 10 years of working hard to establish our business I was feeling tired and jaded; lacking in motivation. LEAD Wales helped me to re-focus on our goals,gave me renewed enthusiasm and ideas. I now feel inspired and I am already seeing the positive results of the changes I have implemented.
I needed to take a step back from the business. There are very few people you can discuss your company with in confidence in everyday life, but with LEAD Wales you are able to do that. It has enabled me to change the way I think, as well as the way I work.
Openly discussing business challenges with other like minded professionals is an immensely rewarding and reflective experience. The programme has provided me with the confidence to expand and look at new opportunities for business growth.
In order to advance our business, we needed to better understand where each other's strengths and weaknesses lay. As a direct result of the LEAD Wales programme, we have seen our turnover grow over 20% and an increase in profitability of 15%.
My confidence was low, and I never really felt like I deserved to be where I was in Business. A fortnight after the first LEAD meeting, we all ventured on our first trip together. The overnight experiential! My most memorable moment. This was when I really started to understand the programme and I let my guard down.
Looking back LEAD Wales came at the right time as we had many challenges but through the various elements of the LEAD Wales programme and the knowledge and expertise from other business owners we overcame them
