Richmond Enterprise Challenge

Launched in July 2018 to April 2019 has been a huge success. We set out to deliver the most comprehensive programme ever delivered across Richmond and achieved just that. We engaged with 3,844 people over 10 months and online platform numbers are growing and has proved to be very successful. 368 people are registered on the portal and we’ve received great feedback from participants who have been able to train in their own time. 


 “CPG Executive Consulting have been delivering business support programmes within the London Borough of Richmond for several years now which includes support for pre-start-ups; start-ups and SMEs seeking to grow.  They have also been involved in delivering bespoke events like our International Women’s Day last year.  In all aspects of their work the CPG team provide a highly professional and excellent service to the business community and their regular progress reporting is also reliable, timely and thorough.  Most importantly their enthusiasm and dedication to the work is infectious and highly motivational both for their business clients and also Council staff managing their contracts.  A serious player in the business support marketplace and I would highly recommend them to others seeking this type of support.”
