Brook’s Angels enable Consultancy to hit growth targets!
Following re-location to Barnsley Business & Innovation Centre (BBIC) last year, a successful Barnsley based Consultancy firm, offering business improvement services to local and regional businesses, has achieved its own growth aim by doubling its turnover in the past 12 months.
The business is going from strength to strength since undertaking a Growth Accelerator exercise and accessing the Enterprising Barnsley business support scheme itself as part of its strategic growth programme, in order that it is better placed to advise its clients on how these schemes can benefit them.
During the past year the Consultancy has expanded the range of advice and services it offers and now covers most areas where SME’s might need assistance/advice. The Consultancy has also increased its profile with regional and national support agencies who provide funding. Brook Corporate Developments Limited has secured approval on several major funding initiative frameworks and is able to offer their Clients support for the cost of the services provided. In order to keep abreast of the variety of these Support Agency funding schemes, Brook has increased its backroom resource.
Brook is working with Barnsley College under its apprenticeship scheme, recruiting Monika Mazurkiewicz an Office Assistant, just over 12 months after her arrival in the UK from Poland. Dianne Bentley, Office Manager at Brook added: “We are pleased to welcome Monika, who has already proven to be an asset, since joining Brook on an Apprenticeship scheme at the beginning of April 2014”. Brook have also appointed Deborah Manning who is concentrating on Business Development for the Consultancy.
The Consultancy’s backroom team aim is to answer queries on the intricacies of the various funding schemes and have become known as “Brook’s Angels”; as seen on their website: www.brookconsult.co.uk/news.”
Mike Brook, Principal Consultant at Brook said: “Since undertaking our own Strategic planning exercise last year we have exceeded our own targets; growing faster than anticipated; increasing the number of consultants and employees and providing funding for Clients through more initiatives. “Following our own experience, and ‘practicing what we preach’ we are in a good position to use our own experiences to help clients achieve success.”
Mike added that Brook continue to help businesses throughout the region and John Hickling, MD of Glass Onion Vintage said: “After only a few sessions we are starting to implement the changes identified by Brook and are beginning to reap the benefits.”
