At We Grow Businesses, our aim is to help clients to grow their businesses as rapidly as possible. Across our client portfolio, with small businesses ranging from agriculture to technology, our results in revenue growth and profit growth speak for themselves. Here are the results that we have achieved over the last 12 months.

  • We've been trading for 25-years and doing very well but even though I thought I knew what I was doing, with thanks to WGBL's input over the last 2-years we have grown and continue to grow significantly. Like 40%!!! They have helped us basically smarten up our act in terms of systems and processes which has made a huge difference and we are delighted. Yes it has meant doing some more work but lots of the changes have been done for us by WGBL - so it's like they're part of our team. Each task we commit to doing often gets done at the last minute before the next 2-weekly WGBL meeting but the key thing is, it gets done whereas I just know it wouldn't get done if I wasn't having the WGBL meeting. This whole process helps you work 'on' your business and as a result it grows. It basically helps you avoid putting the wrong things to one side when you're busy. Starting to work with WGBL is the best decision I've made in a very long time and I would recommend any other small businesses to do the same - even if you are already busy as I was - your business could be soooo much better. Trust me!

  • Francis has really helped me to understand and focus on the important parts of the business and to shape my role from being "in" the business to start working "on" the business. Francis is trustworthy, pragmatic and enthusiastic; and I really appreciate his drive to make a difference and help the business grow.

  • Couldn't recommend Francis and the team highly enough. They gained a very quick understanding of my business plan and pushed me in directions I would not have otherwise considered. They also helped get my sales pipeline organised and I am now able to quickly analyse every aspect of my business pipeline for effective planning and resourcing.

  • We have been working with Francis and the team for just over a year. His advice and insight into the day-to-day running of our business has been invaluable, particularly in the areas of finance, CRM and maintaining our client pipeline. They have offered us extremely useful health checks throughout the year to help us gauge how our business is moving forward. If your business is in need of a gentle nudge forward, I would highly recommend We Grow Businesses Ltd service.

Max Revenue Growth (%)

This result was achieved by a very small business. Two changes drove this result – first acquiring a large client, and second securing a commission agreement on the supply of goods.

137.31%

Min Revenue Growth (%)

This result came from a mature business operating in a saturated market. The business has a limited customer catchment area. We are delivering a strategy to diversify into a different service line, which will hopefully yield better revenue growth. In the longer-term we may also explore opening a new branch with a different catchment area.

This result was achieved by one of our larger clients (as would be expected). It was underpinned by a strong focus on the sales pipeline including up-sell to existing clients.

£98,107

Min Profit Growth

This result came from a business that hired a member of staff, and that member of staff took longer than expected to perform to a satisfactory level.
