When you run an SME there are never enough hours in the day, so business owners need to make their time count, but two-thirds of SME owners feel that there is at least one key area of business that they do not understand. 19% of owners turned to internet search engines when they were unsure, others turned to business website or networks (21%) or spoke to their friends or family (7%). Growth programmes can provide bespoke support to your business and tailor solutions to your exact problem.
