About us

What we do

At Be the Business we are on a mission to tackle the UK’s productivity problem. Since 2017 we've helped British small and medium-sized businesses produce a productivity uplift of £500m. We did this by connecting them to the kind of expertise and experience crucial to finding the 1 per cent productivity improvements that quickly add up to big impacts.

The Productivity Programme is designed to turbocharge your productivity improvement efforts. We'll build an advisory board made up of four experienced business professionals from a variety of backgrounds, support you with a dedicated 1-2-1 mentor and provide access to interactive online peer learning sessions filled with leaders just like you.

The programme

How The Productivity Programme works

Your own advisory board for six months

We'll match you with an advisory board of leaders and senior managers from successful firms – with specialisms like finance, marketing, operations and HR. They'll get to know your business and serve as an impartial sounding board and trusted source of advice that's rooted in real-world experiences.

Two one-to-one mentoring sessions

We'll pair you with a member of your advisory board for two separate one-to-one mentoring sessions in the fourth and sixth of the programme, giving you the ability to work on particular areas of focus in more detail.

Access to online peer sessions

We run regular interactive learning sessions with peers and experts. All hosted online, these sessions cover a range of business topics and give you access to people navigating similar challenges.
