Start local, go national – Growth Advice can aid expansion

Dave Kirby is the CEO and owner of Old Bills Pest Control, based in Amersham, which carries out domestic, commercial and agricultural pest control.

The business started trading in 2012, with Dave starting the company as a way of getting out of the house after retiring from the police force, but today they are on their way to becoming a national company.

Old Bills Pest Control joined Buckinghamshire Business First (BBF) several years ago in order to gain the advice, guidance and knowledge required to grow a local business into a national business. Dave is continuously implementing the advice received from BBF’s Growth Advice Service, saying the assistance received “forms part of our everyday function and is the core of the business.” He sees the service as “the best investment of my time for a long time… possibly ever.”

As you'll see in the above video, Dave recommends joining the free Growth Advice Service to gain knowledge and have access to like-minded people who allow you to develop your confidence and implement successful growth strategies.
