About Chris

After 36 years of sales and marketing experience including the running or 4 small businesses, multi skilled Chris Leighton, was appointed the Programme Director for a local enterprise initiative funded by Norfolk County Council and Investing in Communities in 2010. Over a period of 18 months, she met with over 700 people interested in learning more about self-employment, delivered skills training to some 350, matched 80 with mentors and assisted in the start-up of 90 small businesses across Norfolk. Many of which, are now in their 2nd year of trading. This project was worth over £2mil for the local economy and included a very successful mentoring scheme.
When the funding ended in March 2012, unable to stop helping pre-starts, Chris launched the social enterprise, the Business Skills Clinic CiC; which was immediately appointed the Associate Provider of enterprise training by The Consultancy Home Counties. TCHC are funded by European Social Fund and Skills Funding Agency. The contract enables the Business Skills Clinic to continue to offer 'free' training to those at risk of redundancy or long term unemployed.
Chris’s success and growing reputation was recognised in 2012 by local Marketing Agency, Lexia Media, who included her details in great new book, ‘100 Words on 100 Women’, celebrating some of the most inspirational women in Norfolk and Suffolk.
More recently BSC was awarded the contract for the new council funded initiative, Enterprise Norfolk in South Norfolk, which offers free start-up training to anyone living or working in the area.
The Business Skills Clinic is currently expanding in to South East England, and will be offering both funded and private start-up skills training.
