that today the Business in Focus team operates as one solid unit. They are more prepared when pitching for tenders, they speak a common language of enterprise support and their processes are improved and more efficient. They have had great outcomes, not just individually but organisationally. Richard’s story is just one example of how SFEDI’s Level 7 Certificate in Professional Business and Enterprise Support is good news for everyone operating in and accessing the services of the Enterprise Support Sector. Individuals starting a new enterprise, as well as those growing a business, benefit greatly from being supported by professionally trained, knowledgeable and experienced advisors. Organisations delivering Business Support Services can ensure that by training their professional advisors they are in a better position to provide sound advice to all types of business and, given the right support, these businesses are more likely to grow, employ more people and contribute to the prosperity of the community. Finally, Richard himself finds it a privilege to deliver this programme: “I really enjoy delivering this programme because you see people who are already providing business advice really develop their skills and knowledge in order to make a difference to the clients and businesses that they work with. Good advice is so important to businesses at all stages and it is great to be a part of making this happen.”
The SFEDI Level 7 programme improves the learners’ ability to analyse a client’s business model, equipping them with the skills to critically evaluate business ideas so that they are better able to challenge clients in relation to their plans.”
