The IIB developed the Business Support Programme specifically to meet the needs of independent businesses.
Practical advice that works can be made available to assist the directors/owners of small to medium sized businesses in virtually every way possible. An Executive Associate is made available as a business friend to provide an advice line to the supported company.
The type and level of support is specifically geared to the needs and objectives of each client business, based on a proven model from which countless businesses have benefited. In order to determine if a business qualifies a meeting is arranged with an Executive Associate to talk with the managing director / proprietor / owners, which will include a confidential discussion about the sort of challenges facing the business.
The first meeting is free of charge, and there is no obligation whatsoever, it's an opportunity to have a chat to another director in complete confidence. If any ideas or improvement areas are identified the Executive Associate may be able to point the managing director / owner in the right direction for the right help, but nothing is for sale during the meeting.
Furthermore, the Institute does not have members and the business will not be asked to join the Institute.
