Business Support

Leighton Ormerod ElectricianThe Business Support Group focuses on the skills and resources needed by local businesses – including the many Home Based Businesses within our area.

Our sector of the group decided to initially present a series of themed evening training events, to interest and inform Members:

“Empowering Small Businesses with Training”

The first of these was on Internet Marketing – and was very warmly received.

There are other evenings in the pipeline – these are some of the subjects mooted:

  • Finance & Taxation
  • Elements of a Business Plan
  • Business Planning for Start-ups
  • Building your own Website
  • Credit Management

We would really like to know what interests you and any subjects for which you would like to see a training evening. We will do our utmost to find a Speaker and arrange it.

If you have other ideas of ways we can support Businesses, do please let us know.

You can contact me, Martin Heal by email at or by sending a message here on the 10pbg website >>>

Meanwhile, please do sign up and we’ll let you know when events are arranged.

About Martin Heal
I have held production/factory management roles in the Food and Drink industries for virtually my whole working life, managing / motivating up to 150 staff.
I have found that empowering staff and investing in continuous improvement techniques give the vast majority of staff job enrichment and prove of major benefit to the company.
Now retired but I feel I could use my experience to assist local manufacturing companies to improve productivity.
I am also researching Work Place Pensions for small business.
