As our business continues to grow, we all have to continue
to increase our skill levels. This includes myself,the
Managing Director, more so than anyone.
In the last year Proper Oils has doubled in size, in terms of volume of oil collected and processed.
It’s a credit to the whole team that we have managed to provide our new & existing customers with a great quality, regular cooking oil collection & delivery service. We will never sit on our laurels however, but continue to improve the business and attract more customers to choose Proper Oils.
I’m pleased to announce that Proper Oils, and myself, have been selected for 10,000 Small Businesses, at UCL – one of the top 5 universities in the world which “helps take established small businesses and social enterprises to the next level. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business builds on the economic and job creation potential of the UK’s most promising small businesses and social enterprises. Its goal is to give them all the tools and resources they need to lay the foundations for long-term, sustainable growth, and create jobs for their local communities.”
30 out of 160 businesses who applied, were chosen to participate in 10,000 Small Businesses. We met both the tutors and the other 29 businesses on the 26th June – what an inspirational day. It is great to be one of these, and it is a brilliant opportunity which I plan to make the most of.
I’ll keep you posted on how we plan to improve as the course develops over the next 6 months.
