The Townsend TuneUp

TEPTuneUpPictured at the recent Townsend TuneUp session are Townsend Directors and Staff. “The traditional Local Enterprise Agency business model is now in need of a radical overhaul” according to Townsend Group Chairman John Palmer who was speaking at the recent “Townsend TuneUp” event involving Townsend Directors and Staff.

“All around us, the business environment is changing and while the traditional role of the enterprise agency, that of offering value for money business space for small businesses will remain for some time to come, we do need to look at other business opportunities which will help us to carry out our remit.”

Already Townsend has recognised the need for change and has established CORE-VISION Ltd as a sister company which concentrates on the development and delivery of business skills development programmes. CORE-VISION Ltd is now an accredited ILM centre.

“Further opportunities to develop the Townsend group are currently being assessed as part of a programme for growth and the intention is to build on the experience, skills and expertise built up over the years by the business” added John.
