Leadership Footprint, based in Portishead was founded in the first quarter of 2011 by leadership development expert Richard Moss who decided that despite the economic climate, the time was right to leave corporate life and run his own business.
Leadership Footprint aims to help organisations improve their leadership capabilities, from setting out a vision and purpose through to operational front line leadership and developing management skills and abilities.
The company, which was given start-up advice and support by North Somerset Enterprise Agency, is now celebrating some sizeable contract wins and working on the development of an innovative profiling product.
Richard attended a three-day business start-up course where he learnt about business planning and accounts and how to set up his limited company. Most valuably, he says, he was shown how to draft a contract and set up and document costs for a significant training project.
He also took advantage of advice sessions from North Somerset Enterprise Agency.
“There’s fantastic advice and support out there to help people start their own business. I’d tell anyone who’s dreaming of starting their own enterprise to weigh up what’s stopping them – and then get the advice and support they need to get started.” says Richard.
