In December 2014, Santander commissioned two Enterprising Women Growth Programmes to extend the impact of a pilot programme across the country to more women.

The programmes which were run in London and Nottingham in conjunction with Santander, were specifically designed for women turning over at least £500,00. They combined two days of strategic business development; one day of personal development and leadership, and two half day sessions on finance and leadership.

Overall, women reported substantial improvements across the board in their business knowledge, skills and planning.
