The Business Show, now in it’s 18th year, draws a great crowd and showcases a fantastic range of businesses at the ExCel in London. From business owners passionately showcasing their products and attentive members of the audience making the most of the masterclasses on offer, the atmosphere in the exhibition feels lively and productive as soon as you walk in.

Whilst talking to a variety of entrepreneurs and pre-starts throughout the day, it’s fascinating to see how even the most reserved characters can talk with such confidence and belief whilst still having the modesty to ask for help. At Nwes, we’re lucky to now be at the stage where we can offer an unrivaled amount of business support programmes following our merger with LSBC and NBV. This makes pairing individuals to the right support programmes easier than ever.

One programme in particular that drew a lot of interest across the two days was the new ‘Start, Scale, Grow’ programme, delivered in partnership by Nwes and the London Growth Hub. Jonathan Bannister, host of the ‘Business Model Canvas’ masterclass within the programme, shares an infamous marketing approach on the day:

Designed to give businesses the knowledge, skills and confidence to grow their businesses through workshops and access to 1-to-1 business advice, ‘Start, Scale, Grow’ is free to apply for, but applications are only open for a limited time. Speak to the team to learn more:

Alongside everything that was positive about the show, it was a great reminder that despite the advances in digital communications, nothing beats face to face. Looking forward to November’s show at Olympia where we’ll be showcasing our new online learning channel!
