King’s Business School Consultancy

"How does my business model and strategy need to change in response to COVID-19?" "How can I make the most of social media to grow my business?" "How do I launch a new product?" "How can I build my team without losing its focus?" "How can I make my business more efficient?"

These are just some of the questions you will face as an entrepreneur, alongside the daily challenges of keeping your business on course; challenges which are now changing and intensifying in a COVID-19 world.

Would you benefit from a third-party business consultant with an up-to-the-minute business education to look at these challenges and your business goals with a fresh set of eyes and contemporary perspectives?

Applications for 2022/23 are now closed.

The Opportunity

King’s Business School is committed to supporting local businesses and is collaborating to offer up to 15 enterprises in our local boroughs the opportunity to receive business consultancy from ambitious and skilled students, free of charge. Our students can offer support on a range of business topics, including:

  • HR planning
  • Marketing and social media
  • Financial analysis
  • Strategy and business planning
  • Data analysis
  • Organisational behaviour

"I was totally blown away at the professionalism and creative flair. The team are strong candidates and I would be keen to continue to get to know and future hire potential."

EVRELAB

"The students offered an incredibly in-depth report that will be of great use to our launch strategy over the next six months."

COVID-19

Your business, like ours, will more than likely be impacted by social distancing measures which will make meeting in person impracticable or not possible. In line with social distancing measures and in the interest of public health and safety, we anticipate all engagements and interactions will be facilitated via virtual platforms. Our preferred method of communication is Microsoft Teams, however we and our student consultants can be flexible and adopt your organisation’s preferred method of virtual communication where possible.
