Our ‘One Stop Shop’ approach makes us uniquely and ideally placed to help. Conveniently based in Leicester and Leicestershire, we focus on reaching SME businesses and not-for-profit organisations primarily by word of mouth recommendations from our existing clients and customers.
Let’s not be under any illusion, to succeed in these challenging times it’s an established fact that SMEs need to:
- Increase sales by growing their market share
- Reduce or, at the very least, minimise costs
- Keep pace with technology and embrace its benefits
- Manage risks
- Employ the best people
- Deal with red tape quickly and economically
But, to successfully fulfil all these business objectives it is essential SMEs have access to the right help, advice and expertise – which is where The GB Group comes in.
Our Code of Conduct has been draw up to ensure we offer the highest standards of customer care, with mechanisms in place to deal with any problems or issues. Our members spend time not only getting to know each other but have successfully done business and supported each other for quite some time so that when help is needed from more than one of us we can work seamlessly together for your benefit.
Last but not least, each of our members provides a free customer appraisal to determine an SMEs’ exact requirements. This is then followed up with a value for money proposal.
And, if it is one of our members who has brought us to your attention, he or she will gladly appraise without charge whether any other GB Group member can assist you.
So if you’re looking to sharpen your competitive edge, want to grow your business or need help resolving any troublesome issues, look no further than The GB Group.

“Karen’s coaching sessions have been gold dust for me. We are working on setting up my own business, making progress where I would normally have stumbled and stalled. I wanted her to help me with action planning, which she has, and so much more. She has supported me by pinning these actions to beliefs and values and has gently challenged my thinking and championed my achievements, creating long lasting change and progress. I cannot put a value on the work we are doing together. Karen coaches with kindness and intelligent clarity, a wonderful resource for anyone setting up their own business, or wanting more out of their choices. It is the best investment I could have made.”
