A Bridgnorth initiative launched to help businesses look beyond lockdown is proving successful, with some creative partnerships being formed as a result.
Bridgnorth-based consultancy Good2Great is behind the Growth Club, developed for businesses that want to work alongside likeminded people to achieve growth and even re-evaluate their operations in light of the current crisis.
There are now over 40 members who meet regularly online for networking, tutorials and workshop sessions.
Two participants, fitness coach Ben Mescam and podcast producer Nick Margerrison, originally met through the Growth Club and have gone on to collaborate on a new venture.
Johnny Themans of Good2Great said that when Ben and Nick found out about each other’s new start-up businesses, they identified an opportunity to work in partnership on a project that they hoped would help people struggling to keep fit and healthy during lock-down.
“Ben wanted to launch a new seven-week podcast and Nick, who has extensive experience within radio and podcasting creation, agreed to help Ben get the project off the ground.
“With Nick’s expertise and support, Ben has managed to release his trial podcast ‘A Healthy Conversation with Ben’ where he chats to people from the world of health and well-being about topics including motivation, the importance of sleep and how to fuel your body,” Johnny said.
Nick, who has worked for leading radio stations and is now Creative Director for TopMedTalk.com said: “Ben’s presenting style is relaxed, friendly and informal so his guests are happy to open up to him.”
