There should always be an ‘i’ in Business

There should always be an ‘i’ in Business

Innovation, Improvement, Imagination

There are many ‘i’s that fit in Colbea’s Business Innovation, Improvement, Imagination Group, and we’ve talked about pretty much all of them over the years.


But one thing has never changed, according to Colbea Business Trainer Trevor Edwards,


“The most important “i” in BIG is you! Never lose focus of that. There’s an Oscar Wilde quote – ‘Always be yourself, everyone else is taken.’ – which rings true in business.”


Which is why BIG has been evolving again, slightly, to focus on the issues affecting our members now.


Trevor says, “Bring in your current business issues, and we’ll discuss them and work through them together.”


Running the BIG group in this way helps to ensure that entrepreneurs at every stage of the business journey can relate to and learn from the issues under discussion, and take away with them each month useful, practical advice that they can either apply to their own business, or keep in the bank for the future.


Why BIG is more than just another networking group

Ribbon & Label Supplies is an established, successful business, which has won two Colbea Business Awards and being shortlisted in the Essex Small Business Awards (and supplies more than 350,000 metres of printer ribbons to clients every month!), but owner Mark Lister still attends BIG regularly, having been one of the original members in October 2011.


“I find BIG and the team of advisors to be invaluable as I look for ways in which I can continue to grow my business successfully.

“BIG provide the right information, in the right way for me and have always been available to assist when I have called on them for help with tasks and problems.”
