Should you start your own business?

Deciding to go it alone, working for yourself as a freelancer or starting your own business is a complex decision.

Moral support from your friends and family is great, but it's not a substitute for honest impartial feedback on to help you make the best decision.

We can help you 'reality check' your options, ensuring you have a clear view of how much it will cost to set up your own business and how long it will take you to turn a profit.
Our start up decision-making support package starts from as little as £120 plus vat. A wise investment indeed.
"Enjoyable learning experience, approachable friendly service. All of the Crescente team were supportive through "The Journey" to reach the "Goal" with positive can-do mindset. Thanks JC and team!"

314 people trained over 3 years
100 % agree it was an open forum for honest conversations about leadership.
The Empowering Leaders pathway was co-designed and co-delivered with Peer Specialist trainers from a mental health charity. People with lived experience add real impact to the classroom learning sessions, as did senior managers from the Trust.

A unique partnership with the local University provided M-level accreditation for Professional Practice and Quality Improvement. The programme was characterised by medics and managers learning leadership together to better drive organisational improvements.
"I just wanted to thank you for the great sessions that have been delivered over the last 4 months, I personally get a great deal to reflect upon out of them and have found the learning to be very insightful within my fairly new role."

"John designed a management training to meet our specific business needs. The training sessions were attended by all of our senior managers. Everyone found the course provided an effective and enjoyable development workshop from which they felt better equipped to do their job. I highly recommend John for leadership development programmes."
