Our job at Matchbox Associates is to help ambitious companies
become bigger and more successful.
That’s often about achieving increased turnover, higher profits, implementing projects faster or finding new customers. We use modern business tools combined with our own experience of owning, managing and growing businesses to help our clients achieve these goals.
Our separate training and coaching programme offers practical learning and development support to business owners and senior management teams. It’s delivered either through one to one engagement, or via our workshops, seminars, and master-classes. We’ll help improve business performance by ensuring that owners and managers have access to the skills and support they need to build a better business.
Our typical clients are ambitious SMEs who recognise they can achieve their objectives more quickly by taking external help and advice.
We have a wide network of contacts, and by dovetailing with other local, regional and national support programmes we can signpost companies to potential funding support for many of our programmes, as well as offer updates on local business resources.
“An organisation’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.” Jack Welch.
