Amazing advice and support through the online business training. This was my first time with zoom , John and Shaun were both really knowledgeable and helpful, and answered any questions i had. The information gained through the three 4 hour sessions was fantastic! all the course material was sent after the session in case there was anything i missed, as well as useful templates and spreadsheets. The whole team at MENTA have been great, they will always answer emails quickly, and are on hand when you call. Fantastic service, i highly recommend anyone looking to start a business to do this course!
I was googling how to write a business plan to get started with my new company Sunflower Shine in Suffolk (Domestic Cleaning Business) when I discovered Menta's website. I quickly saw they offered free Start Up training and signed up. I was so glad I did. As well as timely and relevant guidance they also provide a tool kit that includes spreadsheets and templates needed to get started in business. John Clarke was excellent presenter and the ethos of encouragement and support among the group via Zoom also much appreciate. Mary Cook sunflowershine.co.uk
The Google My Business session with Nick was practical, informative and succinct. A productive way to spend a couple of hours at a very reasonable price. Thank you.
