The coronavirus pandemic had a devastating impact on live events which are at the heart of CGI Music’s music events and artist management business. Business owner, Charlie Gardner got in touch with the Growth Hub to access support for his business at this challenging time.
One of the Growth Hub’s enterprise executives worked with Charlie to identify what support was available. CGI Music had never applied for grant funding before, so the support of an enterprise executive to guide them through the process was invaluable.
Charlie said: “Covid-19 had a severe impact on our business. Overnight it really changed the landscape of the world that we work in. I’m massively grateful for all the help and support that the Growth Hub has provided at this difficult time. It can be a bit of a lonely world running your own business so having a support system like that [the Growth Hub] is really invaluable.”
Through the Trading Better Online programme, CGI Music developed their online presence with a new website and SEO optimisation, working with another local business they connected with through the Growth Hub’s network.
Charlie said: “I would highly recommend any other local businesses who need that support to reach out.”
