The 'Grow Network' - a new training solution for small local businesses

Grow Network

At Crisp Professional Development we have been supporting the learning and development of small businesses for over 25 years. Through Business Link, Train2Gain, Growth Accelerator and other initiatives, we have helped those owning and working in small businesses to acquire vital business skills. In response to client encouragement and our desire to empower and upskill small, businesses further, we are launching our own initiative – the GROW Network.

According to government figures, 96% of businesses in the UK employ fewer than 10 people. That's 3 million of them, accounting for 32% of employment.

Our GROW network is a scheme for leaders and employees in small businesses.

As well as gaining access to our Open Course training days at highly competitive prices, your membership will provide you with exclusive ‘members only’ events and offers, unlimited discounted rates for additional Open Course, In-House, and ILM training and Coaching.

Our members’ only networking events will highlight key topics relevant to small businesses and provide an opportunity to share learning and challenges with peers from other small businesses across the South West.

We'll be releasing more details soon. But in the meantime if you'd like to further information, contact us at
