Jonathan Parsons from Brighton based goworkers said "The Business Navigator service has truly been a huge part of goworkers success. The Business Navigator has been with goworkers on every step of the way.

The best thing about the Business Navigator is their understanding of the steps we needed to take and putting us in touch with so many helpful people and organisations along the way. The Business Navigator was able to foresee some of the help that we needed before we even knew we needed it and this is what really made a difference.

We received many referrals for really helpful services from the Business Navigator from business mentoring, workshops and local Government grant schemes that we would never have heard about."
