GrowthAccelerator - the new government-backed service to help ambitious companies go far and grow fast, invite you to attend a free, introductory evening event on October 18th at the Magna Science & Adventure Centre in Rotherham, from 4.15pm.

Hear about GrowthAccelerator from its own experts and pick their brains... listen to local businesses and entrepreneurs reveal their success secrets and discuss key issues in your region... network with other like-minded companies keen to swap local leads and business opportunities... and learn some new business strategies from the exceptional guest speakers.

The event will provide a unique opportunity to hear Ellis Watson talk about his personal experiences as Chief Executive of DC Thomson, one of the world's largest family-owned media groups, and as former head of Syco Entertainment, the joint venture between Simon Cowell and Sony, where he ran the global format and commercial strategies for X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.

Ellis will then be joined by a specialist panel of experts, including regional companies, local business professionals and Growth Coaches, who will share first-hand how they have successfully grown their own business and how GrowthAccelerator can help growing businesses overcome challenges in areas such as commercialising innovation, access to finance, developing leadership skills and business development.

The event will be hosted by writer, broadcaster and journalist, Michael Taylor, the founder of Think More, chairman of Downtown Manchester and former editorial director of publishing group Insider.

If you believe your business is good enough to double in size, GrowthAccelerator will work with you to get there. 

We can help you:
• Discover your true potential for growth
