This week I was delighted to hear from one of our workshop attendees, Harry Boyt, and his experiences on our 2-Day Start Up Skills workshop.
Offering budding entrepreneurs from the military community a handrail of support throughout their business journey is what X-Forces Enterprise built its foundations on. Over this past year, we’ve expanded our training programmes to brand new virtual masterclasses and spouses training workshops, as well as continuing to deliver our core set of programmes, including our longstanding 1-Day and 2-Day Self-Employment workshops, supported by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity since 2015.
Harry is just beginning his journey, but he has already joined several of our courses, and once his business has launched towards the end of 2021, we will continue to be there every step of the way, whether through additional training programmes, ongoing mentoring or support from the Hub.
I look forward to finding out where Harry’s journey will take him. Read more below:
After twelve years in the British Army, Officer and previous business-owner Harry Boyt has his sights firmly set on his next business venture, officially leaving the Army in July 2021. He recently chatted to us about his experience on our two-day Start Up Skills workshop. This workshop, supported by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, supports those in the military community wishing to learn more about what starting up a business means for them, running through their business plans, the ins-and-outs of finances and marketing, and is also an opportunity to network with other likeminded entrepreneurs.
“I looked back from when I made the call to leave the Army in July last year, and there’s absolutely no way I’d be where I am now without X-Forces Enterprise’s and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s support through the courses I’ve done with them. Thoroughly recommend them. It will shape and develop my business decisions to come, especially giving me that confidence to do it. Going from a big military team to starting a business on your own can be quite lonely, so to have that support is brilliant.”
Harry, who set up and ran a successful bespoke interiors business for three years before joining the Army, plans to launch his new business in 2021, and vowed to keep learning and developing his skills until that time – and afterwards too.
“If you’re leaving the services, and you’re even thinking of going into business you have to do this course, it’s that simple. Both the one day and two day courses. There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain.”
