The programme is part of Boost’s #AskForHelp campaign, launched on March 23 to support all Lancashire businesses through the coronavirus pandemic.

Andrew Leeming, programme manager, Boost, said: “The #AskForHelp campaign has provided invaluable support to help businesses tackle the challenges presented by coronavirus. We are here for clients throughout this journey.

"Many businesses have successfully adapted to these new conditions and now need to think about recovery. Forward Thinking has a great reputation and this is a service which has been used by hundreds of businesses. Boost Success GPS Online will help Lancashire companies tap into an established, successful model and develop a plan to succeed and grow over the next decade.”

Boost is Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub. It is led by the Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership and Lancashire County Council and supported by funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

Andrew Henderson, of Forward Thinking, said: “The programme applies practical psychology to merge the process of growing a business with personal development for the business owner. It is focused on where you want to be in the future: increased revenue, profits and new customer wins.”

The coaching programme comes with a range of tools including a business map and programme guide to help companies continue to benefit after the training sessions.
