This month saw V Formation’s Sue Carr graduate from the University of Nottingham. Sue was one of the lucky 30 students selected to take part in the second cohort of the Growth 100 programme.
The Growth 100 programme is open to Nottingham-based businesses and is delivered by Nottingham University Business School in conjunction with Nottingham City Council. The programme is partly financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
Growth 100 has been designed to fit around the needs of running a business with twelve one-day practical sessions delivered over a nine month period. The workshops are geared towards how the business leader creates and manages growth covering topics such as leadership, innovation, finance, HR, sales and marketing using a combination of business theory supported by real life examples from business mentors.
The experience has cemented our existing plans for V Formation and given us a clear focus for the future. With a range of high level speakers from academia and industry, we have picked up some real take-aways that we can implement in our business.
