The latest initiative to help small and medium sized businesses to get through the coronavirus pandemic has launched.
The Recovery Advice for Business scheme (another snappy title) is supported by the government and hosted on the Enterprise Nation website. It is a great idea offering free, one-to-one advice with expert advisors in a series of different fields.
Advice offered will include bespoke, specialist assistance from accountancy, legal, and advertising to marketing, recruitment and digital to help businesses adapt to difficult circumstances and to bounce back as the UK economy recovers.
There are already over 12,000 advisors in the Enterprise Nation community and thousands more are expected to join specifically for this scheme, all giving their time up for free to help the nation recover.
Getting involved is pleasingly simple, head to the Enterprise Nation site to register your business for free and create a profile. From there they will guide you through an online diagnostic health check of your business to help guide you to the most useful experts for you. These experts will focus on these key areas:
Accounting & finance
People and building a team
Planning, strategy and pivoting
Marketing, PR and social media
Technology and digital tools
These experts will not just be sending generic emails out to you but engaging in one-on-one phone conversations to ensure you get help specific to your needs.
This scheme will be running until the end of the year. Simply head to the website to sign up now.
