Socially enterprising since 1983

Wenta spoke with Jane Owens and Helen Flack, Co-Founders of 'build my confidence'. They received free business support and advice and secured access to a grant:

"We have been face to face trainers for many years and we were inspired by wanting to share our knowledge and experience to people who are keen to develop themselves but who don’t typically have access to formal training opportunities.

"Because a startup was a different and unfamiliar proposition for us, we reached out to Wenta as we wanted wanted expert support to guide us in the right direction. There were training programmes that covered vital areas of how to make a business successful. One to one coaching sessions, and financial help in the form of a grant were all available.

"The training programme covering 'running a business' helped to avoid pitfalls which would have slowed down our progress. One to one coaching and mentoring gave us the opportunity to have great conversations with coaches and experts who have been in our position and who could give us practical guidance help and motivation. The grant was helpful to engage support in website design and SEO.

"The grant application was an easy process made even more straightforward by Karen and the Wenta Business Advice and Support Team. They showed endless patience when answering questions and kept us updated at all times. The grant enabled us to execute our launch more quickly than we had previously planned.

"We are still evolving but exploring future campaigns that will get us in front of the right audiences with strong messages about how we can help. We are developing more programmes aimed at people aspiring to become managers."
