Running and growing a business

Running or growing a business can be demanding, and you will need to adapt to changing markets. Don’t worry – LEAP is here for you, and it’s free!

If you are running or growing a business and need advice contact LEAP. The team will listen and talk to you about concerns or ambitions to make sure you get the right advice to succeed.

We’re currently offering Lewes based businesses 12 hours of free specialist business coaching. Perhaps you want to attend one of our workshops but don’t want to complete the entire leadership / start-up programme? Use up the rest of your funded hours with 1-2-1 sessions with expert advisers on social media, business planning, cash flow forecasting, contracts, business law, pricing, marketing, franchising, general business advice, or HR.

This programme of support is match funded by Lewes District Council and the ERDF under Chichester University’s Business Hothouse initiative.

For more information email or call the team on 01323 641 144.

How LEAP can help you

1-2-1 Business Advice

With over 35 years of experience, our business mentors have seen it all and have a range of specialisms. So regardless of whether you need to discuss your next business idea, are looking to expand or you need guidance on any area of your business, we will be able to help.

Social Media Training

Social media is becoming increasingly important to businesses of all sizes as customers increasingly look at a business online before deciding whether to buy. Our 1-2-1 training includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. We will analyse what you are doing well, areas that need improvement and show you how to do it! And if you don’t have a social media presence, we will help to get you online.

Business Networking

Often it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, and people like to do business with people they know and trust. Networking allows you to stand out and make an impact. We are hosting regular networking events to help you meet new contacts, clients and business leads.

Referrals to other support agencies

Are you looking for financing through loans and grants? Maybe you are looking to expand or move into the area? We work with other support agencies to get you the best advice and support.
