"Joining the Cranfield University BGP has been an ‘eye opening’ journey to ways in which we can grow and develop our company allowing us to place our business in a very strong and sustainable position moving forward. We have gained a great deal of invaluable experience from the course.

Just by putting into action the ideas we gathered at the initial Briefing session before the programme started, more than covered the cost of the BGP programme itself."

Martyn Curley and Steve Oldbury,, BGP January 2012

What Participants think...

"BGP was worth every penny and I`m no longer flying by the seat of my pants!"

Lara Morgan, Pacific Direct

"You’ve got to take time out.  There’s never a good time.  You are always going to be busy as an owner-manager.

But making the commitment to take time out of the business, so that you can really focus your efforts will make you a lot more productive.”

Christina Bassadone, Guardian Angel Carers.

"The biggest single lesson you can take away is… it teaches you how to look for the answers."

Michael Wright, Riviera Tours (Holdings). 

"BGP has enabled me to build a future for my business, rather than a month-to-month headache, and has helped me understand what I need to focus on to keep myself happy."

Ian Makgill, Ticon.
