All these services are conveniently delivered directly to the client's door.

What value did you receive from BACD?

BACD has provided invaluable support, resources and training to make me feel more confident in starting this new endeavour. One key outcome has been the guidance in developing a formalized business plan which is a document that I will be able to maintain and use going forward in business development meetings. Another benefit is the network I have already built with my fellow cohort members and learning from one another’s experiences.

What advice would you give to someone starting their own business?

Never underestimate the power of networking. Talk to others who have started their own business and ask them for advice and what lessons they have learned. Many contacts (clients, suppliers, service providers) I have made have been referrals from others within my network. And never leave home without your business card!
