A Business Growth Hub Partner  

McKenzie Growth Management has been selected by the Business Growth Hub to help them deliver a fully-funded Executive Development Programme across Greater Manchester.

The Hub’s Executive Development Programme has proven highly effective with 500 out 596 participating companies showing a direct increase in Gross Value Added, 550 new jobs created and 20 new-to-company products developed as a direct result of participation. 


MDs, CEOs and business owners of eligible Greater Manchester companies can work with me to pilot the Growth Probability MatrixTM at no cost to their business

During the three-month Executive Development Programme you will: 

  • Learn about Growth Probability™ and the two fundamental levers that can be used to improve your Shareholder Value.
  • Reflect on your chances of success, using 13 Growth Probability Indicators (GPIs) to determine your position on the Growth Probability MatrixTM and highlight your strengths and what might be holding you back.
  • Adopt a quarterly rhythm that will help you, and your senior team, work ‘on the business’ not just in it, improve your GPI ratings and, as a result, your Growth Probability.

If you're based in Greater Manchester, then take a look at the eligibility criteria below. If you think you might be eligible, let me know using the button below.
