Meet Emma SelbyFounder of Your Business Hub
“As the owner of several small businesses over the last twenty years I have always been frustrated by the absence of any real face to face support for people like me. Over 80% of business owners work alone and most of them have little or no actual business training. Every one of them needs a supportive and engaged team of people around them to help them get to grips with the challenges of running a small business. But only rarely can someone afford to start building a team right from the outset. In fact we know that 75% of business owners in the UK never employ another person. So I opened the first Business Hub – a space for business owners to come together and share experiences and expertise. We create our own support teams from our peers and train each other by sharing our business expertise. It’s such a simple solution but it really works!
It’s great to see the community grow and to foster the exchange of ideas and collaboration among the membership. I love to hear that my Hub members meet regularly on and off line to sense check ideas, source people and request information. I provide my members with access to a network of business owners, boardroom style problem solving, accountability and inspirational talks – the membership do the rest!
After the success of the Farnham Hub I launched The Guildford Hub with franchisee Joanne McGowan in March 2015. The Guildford hub has been a resounding success and I am now very excited to be extending the network of Business Hubs across the UK. if you would like a Hub in your town just leave your email details below and we’ll send you an information pack with prices and details for 2017!
