Experts Grow launch at ExpoWest Cornwall 5 Mar

Our new programme, Experts Grow,  will be launching at this year’s Cornwall Expo West event.

Designed to help Cornish businesses build capacity and skills, Experts Grow works directly with their organisations to help them progress talent within the workforce. Using tailored support, an abundance of practical tools and collaboration with like-minded businesses, the programme empowers owners and executives to grow their business.


As the charity behind Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, we developed the programme in order to support both the local economy and to help create progressive, attractive workplaces. We believe that people development lies at the heart of any successful business, and that a focus on skills and knowledge increases passion and loyalty, leading to improved customer experiences and profits.

Backed by the European Social Fund, Experts Grow is completely free to small and medium-sized businesses in the Cornish hospitality and agri-food sectors – from fishmongers to fine-dining restaurants.

Meet our experts

Launching at Expo West, business owners and leaders can visit the team on the Experts Grow stand (L7) to find out more or sign up to an expert one-to-one session to get the ball rolling right away, with expertise including finance, sales, marketing and training.

Expo West runs from Tuesday 5 March to Thursday 7 March at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge. The event showcases the best of Cornish food, drink and hospitality, along with the latest innovations in the sector.
