In early 2017, we were approached by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership, with the prospect of joining the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme. The programme specifically targets organisations that have the potential for fast and sustainable growth. Mobile was the perfect fit thanks to our recent performance and growth in network distribution and logistics in Birmingham.
We began with an online questionnaire, followed by a face to face interview, which resulted in the company being selected to take part in the programme.
The programme began in September and ran through until December of 2017. It consisted of 7 full days of intensive strategy workshops and also weekly webinars.
Ian Jolly our commercial Director who sat through the course said;
‘It was a fantastic experience for both myself and the company. Although we are already well established, the importance of learning new things and getting fresh ideas is so important. Working with Goldman’s has helped confirm, we are doing some good things. Likewise, the opportunity to listen to industry experts has opened our eyes to the greater potential we can achieve.’
The company can now proudly say we are part of the Goldman Sachs Alumni and can look forward to working closely together, as the business continues to grow.
