TFL at Footsey 2010George Watts speaking with Judith Smith at Footsey 2010, the social enterprise trade fair held at Doncaster Racecourse.  Judith presented this new social enterprise, Liveable, to the Dragons Den and received offers of funding from all of the dragons present.

Leadership and Management Funding

We are all aware from the press about the expenditure cuts that are being introduced by the current government, which will impact upon us all in some way.  Our philosophy when working with you in your business is to assist you to be in control of your own destiny and so this funding can be used to assist you.  To be eligible you should employ between 5 and 249 staff.  For organisations with less than 10 employees the owner/CEO is the sole eligible person and for larger organisations it is available for key directors/managers. 

For the first £500 of support no match funding is required to be provided by your company.  In excess of £500, it must be matched 50:50, with the maximum support of £1,500 requiring you to incur £500.

How could we assist you? Improvements in financial awareness, key performance indicator development, dynamic budgetary control, business and financial forecasting and a wide range of other financial skills may be eligible if they are recognised as being a development requirement for the individual to improve their leadership and management skills.  Other criteria may also be required to be satisfied.

Watts Associates is registered to provide such support and so for an initial discussion call George Watts on 01302 842831 or use our contact page.
