What they say about us:

I was lucky enough to stumble across the Let's Do Business Group by a recommendation from a friend. I was in the early stages of setting up my business and feeling quite overwhelmed with all the information out there online/in forums/in books. I attended the Her Biz Women's Startup Programme, a 4 week course that delved into the fundamentals from financial planning to marketing strategy to business plan research. It was brilliant - concise, clear and very accessible. I came out filled with confidence and with a host of resources and knowledge to kick start my journey. Would definitely recommend!” Rachel Pullen (HerBiz workshop participant). 

Its an incredible feeling to find such generous and practical support. Feel so lucky to have encountered Lets Do Business. Thank you so much!” Lucy Paffard. 

LDB have provided support in so many ways over the years, especially at the startup stage, training, one to one advice, exhibitions, help with my business plan, help with my exit strategy and so many more. Every startup would benefit” Ray Matthews.
