CJX Business Services has been launched by Joanne Boyd, who has recently returned to Lancashire from the USA, where she spent 27 years in Senior Director, VP and Non-Executive Director (NED) roles, including as vice principal of a major organisation. She has spent her career working in and with SMEs, national corporates and Global Fortune 1000 companies. Her goal is to deliver bespoke business growth solutions for Lancashire businesses across all business sectors, including IT & technology, manufacturing, engineering, construction, transportation & Logistics and healthcare.
By signposting companies to sources of loans and grants, Joanne believes that CJX Business Services will be able to help Lancashire SMEs access funding that will make the business planning process Investment-neutral and release funds to drive growth.
“My aim is to provide big business thinking at an affordable, local level and help Lancashire SMEs grow by creating tailored plans that work,” explains Joanne. “Many SMEs don’t realise how much funding is out there and don’t have time to find out. We have that information at our fingertips so we can help them identify funding that will pay for the commercial planning process and provide a springboard for growth. For example, there are funding options of up to £5000 available from Lancashire’s Boost business growth hub and, as a Boost & Co Partner, we are well-placed to help companies identify and apply for the right funding for their company.”
