Expert Business Advice

Helping small businesses connect with trusted free business advice and support.

There are no lack of business support services available in London. However, finding the right one can be tricky. Also, for small business owners focusing on their day-to-day in a challenging economy, it can simply be too time consuming.

One solution is to have a business buddy who can put you in touch with experts who can provide valuable and impartial advice.

Using the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF), we have managed to secure Expert 1-2-1 Business Advice. Many of you will be already familiar with Bob Clarke who lead on  the GLA's Wayfinder programme here in Newham.

Bob is a business coach, advisor, and mentor with extensive experience in SMEs, offering advice, coaching, and mentoring to boost growth and profitability. He focuses on business planning, commercial finance, sales, marketing, international trade, and change management. The coaching will examine the business vision and see how short and medium term objectives can be attained. Bob's sector-agnostic approach involves balancing resources against finance, marketing, and operational constraints, aiming for formal actions within an agreed time frame.
