Business Diagnostic and Advice for Jewellers and Silversmiths

Do you want to seize the future and grow your emerging jewellery business in the UK? Or have you been running your business for a while, and need support to gain traction? Our new Diagnostic and Advice sessions are a first practical step to help you figure out where your jewellery business stands right now and what to do to take it to the next level.

Spend time with our high-profile industry panel as part of an online Diagnostic session and access invaluable business advice and understand your growth potential. Receive your own tailored Diagnostic Report, ensuring you don’t waste precious time or resources before making critical decisions for your business.

Use your time with the expert panel to explore any area of your business or practice. For example, this is your chance to:

  • understand your business’ strengths and weaknesses and discover opportunities.
  • develop priorities and an action plan for your business.
  • get your jewellery products or creative ideas reviewed.
  • get an insight into how to make your jewellery brand stand out.
  • determine your training or coaching needs.
“The session provided me with a wealth of information and invaluable feedback which was directly informed by my own questionnaire and body of work. This tailored approach was what offered such great value for money, as did the sheer knowledge and level of experience of those who I was lucky enough to have on my panel. Would highly recommend!”
