Leading business support provider, BizSmart®, has celebrated its 10th year in business with an event attended by around 40 of its loyal members.

Hosted at the Chase Distillery in Hereford, attendees marked the impressive milestone with an exclusive tour of the distillery, followed by speeches from BizSmart® founder and director, Kevin Brent, and the wider leadership team.

The event also celebrated the official launch of Kevin’s first book, The Entrepreneurial ScaleUp System, which delves into the key reasons why most organisations do not scale and provides a practical step-by-step guide for business owner-managers to navigate the challenges they face.

Having helped over 1000 business leaders escape the ‘owner-manager’ trap and scale growth through its dedicated ‘Flight Academy®’ programme and wider service offering, BizSmart® has established a leading reputation within the business community – particularly across the Worcestershire and Herefordshire regions, where it has secured and delivered multiple growth support programmes.

Kevin Brent, founder and director of BizSmart®., said: “The last 10 years have been an incredible journey for BizSmart®. We have not only had the privilege of working with and supporting the growth of hundreds of business owners, but we have also worked very hard to establish a leading and proven brand within the business support industry.

“We are very grateful to everyone who took the time to celebrate with us at our anniversary event and are now looking forward to the next chapter of growth, as we build on our newly developed franchise model and extend support to hundreds more business owners UK wide.”

BizSmart®’s 10th anniversary follows a period of significant growth, having accelerated its annual turnover by 130% during 2021 – forecast to increase further by the close of 2022.

In November 2020, BizSmart® launched its own franchise model, which gives proven professionals the opportunity to establish their own business support offering under the BizSmart® umbrella.
