What our participants say

Your service has been 5/5 for me. Thank you! I've found your support invaluable to me. You have great interpersonal skills, including patience. You have a real talent for explaining business concepts (often quite complex to a business naive person like me). Your templates have really helped me define my business and working through cash flow. Our work together has helped me to feel more confident in my business idea and the possibility that it can work and I am good enough. For all this I am very grateful to you and to SEK for offering this service.
SEK went the extra mile to support my business, by understanding my most pressing challenges and helping me to explore collaboration with another local social entrepreneur. Before, I felt like I was facing a brick wall, but now I recognise this is an intersection where I can turn left or right to find a way forward.
Working with SEK was both enjoyable and informative. I would even go as far as to say imperative as we have now been awarded a grant with UnLtd and I can say with certainty that without the training that SEK gave me I would have been overwhelmed with the communications and things I've been dealing with. Having a wider viewpoint of how a business, even a social enterprise like ours, needs to operate to be successful has helped now and I don't doubt it will stand me in good stead in the future.
