Who We've Helped

Syzygy Leisure

Syzygy Leisure is a Moulton-based company offering a range of services across the UK including first aid, safeguarding, equality and diversity, strategic planning for sport such as feasibility strategies and sports development and leisure and cultural strategies.

Syzygy’s owner, Liz Behnke, contacted the Northamptonshire Growth Hub when they were considering an expansion of one of their services.

“Our meeting with a Digital Adviser highlighted some weaknesses in our digital systems and identified some new products which we are now exploring to help us work smarter. We have also attended some of the training sessions organised by the Growth Hub which have been really helpful and also generated new business leads.”

Sue Jaycock started Choosewellbeing in July 2015 and, with a fast-growing clientele, already has three clinics. Clients are treated using a method called Neurostructural Integration Technique, an advanced form of Bowen Technique which is gaining popularity in the UK as well as the USA and Europe.

The Northamptonshire Growth Hub was approached by Sue who needed professional validation of her business ideas, input as to the best way forward and meticulous feedback.

“Having been directed to an appropriate business adviser, it was encouraging to be on the receiving end of such infectious enthusiasm which left me feeling motivated and with a can do attitude. It can be quite lonely being a sole trader so it was reassuring to know that my adviser was always on hand to discuss anything with him.”
