The Enterprise Academy
Thank you for your interest in The Enterprise Academy. We are so glad you are here. Why? Because you, like us, are interested in starting and growing your own businesses; something that we have been doing for many years. You see, we’re both really interested in making a life for ourselves that give us the freedom
To make our dreams come true we both really need to create business ideas and then to work hard at promoting our ideas to those interested in our products and services.
What we do is to create and deploy simple and useful learning and a range of tools that will help you turn that germ of a business idea into reality. Then, to use that learning and those tools and techniques to help you get online traffic, leading to business leads and then sales.
In The Enterprise Academy we provide you with a range of courses and other learning to help you move through the various stages of new business development. We then show you how to use the web and Social Media because like you we are people focussed and we both run people businesses. For the moment keep reading to find out how we got to where we are now and also where we’re both going in the future.
If you’re like us then entrepreneurship is in your blood. We come from a long line of entrepreneurs going back to the 1800’s – Yes, that far. So, it was not unusual when we started our own businesses and started to help others to do the same.
Of course things were very different when we started. There were no mobile phones, no World Wide Web, no Social Media and no email. We had direct mail (mailshots) and business directories. And we had TV, radio and the newspapers and the expense that went with all of that. Haven’t thing changed? And we’ve changed as well.
We started out helping businesses startup back in the 1980’s running regular monthly workshops that in a day would at least signpost budding entrepreneurs to the best way of getting their new business off the ground. As news spread we appeared on radio, TV and had regular weekly columns in some of the newspapers. This lead to an offer to work as advisers to both the UK and US Governments on implementing measures to create the right type of environment for new businesses to flourish. More radio, TV and the press followed.
Bringing things up to date we now do most of this work online and have taken concepts learned from our years of working with small to medium sized enterprises into our Virtual Learning Environment so that anyone, anywhere and at any time can benefit from our expertise.
To Your Success!
