Governments across Europe are turning to SMEs to generate economic growth and new jobs following the global recession.
With interest from Lithuania, Slovenian, Hungary and Romania, Exponential has been contracted by the European Commission to lead a two year project to develop High Growth Coaches.
“It is a real honour to be leading this exciting project and working with some of Europe’s top business development agencies. Over the next two years, we will be able to share our expertise at a European level!” said John Moore.
In 2007, Exponential developed the High Growth Coach Development Programme on behalf of the East Midlands Development Agency (emda). The huge success of the programme has prompted interest from other regions in the UK as well as South Africa and Europe.
Partners in the project include Trebag, Enterprise Lithuania, CIDaf, CPU and the Institute for Business Consulting. The project launch will take place in the beautiful city of Ljubljana the same week as another major European project being lead by Exponential involving the assessment of 300 European managers.
Exponential was awarded the contract by the European Commission as part of the Leonardo da Vinci designed to transfer innovation from one member state to others. The project will see Exponential’s e-learning courses translated into four languages and Exponential training dozens of coaches and trainers in High Growth Coaching techniques.
“Since one of the aims of the programme is to share best practice, we will be hosting a series of mini conferences both in the UK and Europe” added John.
