Deneale graduates from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme

3224-1022We are proud to say that Deneale has successfully completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 small businesses programme. Here she is pictured at the graduation ceremony held in Oxford earlier this month. This UK wide, 12 week programme is funded by Goldman Sachs and the Goldman Sachs Foundation. It gives high quality, practical education and support to small businesses with aspirations for growth.

The course is based around an intensive 12 week period which incorporates twice weekly online webinar sessions and weekly growth group tutorial sessions. It also includes three residential learning opportunities where the whole cohort of 70 businesses come together to learn from each other and create a network of business support for the future. The programme also allocated Deneale with a personal mentor who worked with the business on a one-to-one basis to help Deneale formulate a business plan going forward.

Deneale says of the experience “I have really enjoyed undertaking the Goldman Sachs 10ksb course. The quality of the teaching given is exceptional as is the learning environment and the support given throughout the programme. I have learned a huge amount from the variety of modules covered and also from the other businesses on the course. I have developed a plan for the business going forward and will now join the alumni programme to benefit from the support into the future. It has given me the confidence to be ambitious in our growth aspirations and make sure the world knows about the fantastic work we do here every day!”
