As we approach the end of the Goldman Sachs programme
we reflect on the valuable expertise we have been exposed to over the last 6 months. The curriculum is designed specifically for the 10,000 Small Businesses programme by world-class international, national and local experts in entrepreneurial learning. The focus is on developing the practical skills and knowledge that we as small business and social enterprise leaders require as we grow our business. We have experienced a series of sessions centred around honing our business direction, skills and key services which we will continue to develop over the coming years.
One of the messages which has been loud and clear is the great asset you have in the people which make up our business and getting the best out of them has knock-on effects for clients, candidates and employees alike. Goldman Sachs focus on our businesses culture, vision and values and approach of ‘polishing our diamonds’ will form the basis of our strength as a group and the driving force for achieving milestones and growth. There are many factors which we will need to blend together to ensure our business is the best which we can make it but our people will be the chief focus in bringing it all together. The course has been invaluable in not just assessing what we have not got but also in cherishing and nurturing what we have which largely is our people. We will continue to drive this great area of strength and feel privileged to have had exposure to the expertise Goldman Sachs provided.
