A division of property giant Bruntwood, Bruntwood Works, the workspace provider is launching its Spark programme in collaboration with, Enterprise Nation the small business support network.
Through Spark, businesses at Bruntwood Works facilities in Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire and other sites in the North and West Midlands, will be offered personalised guidance on wide-ranging topics, from HR and legal issues, finance, sales, and marketing and digital strategies.
The advice will be provided free of charge and once coronavirus social distancing measures are relaxed, the one-to-one online sessions, will hopefully expand to the programme including face-to-face sessions.
Another of the aims of the project is the hope that it will inspire further collaboration among businesses within the Bruntwood Works community and boost knowledge-sharing among the firm’s network of 2,000 member businesses and 55,000 consumers.
Ciara Keeling, chief executive of Bruntwood Works, said, “Over the last few months businesses of all sizes have been turned upside down as a result of coronavirus. Many have been forced to change their ways of working and pivot their business models overnight. Lockdown has had huge ramifications across every sector of the economy and we have been working hard to ensure that all of our customers have access to the support they need throughout the crisis. Through our partnership with Enterprise Nation we will be able to provide a programme of support that can tangibly help companies within the Bruntwood Works network take hold of new opportunities for growth, as well as respond to some of the challenges they now face.”
The Spark project will also leverage the digital competencies of Enterprise Nation, whose mission is to generate an inspirational environment for owners and budding entrepreneurs. It also includes a new webinar series that will be hosted on, The Collective, the digital community run by Bruntwood Works.
