Bellotas Associates are pleased to announce that they have joined an amazing group of likeminded
individuals and businesses who are delivering and supporting the Government-funded Help to Grow:
Management programme in the UK. The course supports senior managers and owner-managers of
small and medium-sized businesses to boost their business’s performance, resilience, and
long-term growth.

The 12-week programme is designed to be taken alongside full-time work through a combination of
online and face-to-face learning and is supported by a dedicated mentor. The cost to attend is also
90% funded by the Government.

Curriculum support is in-depth and high quality and is designed to build capabilities in leadership,
innovation, digital adoption, employee engagement, marketing, responsible business, and financial
management. The programme culminates in the development of a business growth plan to help lead
your business to release its potential.


“David was appointed as my mentor in the Help To Grow Scheme arranged via the University Of Kent.
I am a Managing Director of a well-established SME in a high-tech sector and have over 45 years
of experience. However, never in that time have I had the opportunity of having an independent
mentor and I found David to be invaluable in that role. I will be retiring in the next few years
and David’s experience and advice was instrumental in formulating a succession plan which
I had always put off till another day. His ability to assimilate information and give real practical
advice and help was invaluable and I would recommend David as a mentor to anyone
at any stage in their career”

Managing Director Hilger Crystal Ltd

“I was introduced to David via the Help to Grow Scheme as part of the University of Kent. As a
business owner of a growing SME consultancy, his help has been highly valuable. Having not
run a business before, having David’s time, opinion and advice on any topics, for me, as a
new business owner, has helped me focus on the key attributes of the business and
focus on the growth in a clear, pragmatic way. David is professional, knowledgeable 
and approachable and has given me the tools to deliver business performance
in a way that previously eluded me!.”

Stuart Angell, Managing Director, IVDeology Ltd
