The managing director of Corsham-based energy management company SMARTech has graduated from the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK programme.
Stuart Pearce, who founded SMARTech energy in 2014 to offer complete energy management and reduction for commercial businesses, graduated at a ceremony at Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre, which was addressed by Peter Tufano, the dean of Said Business School, and wellness entrepreneur Liz Earle.
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme is designed to provide high quality, practical education and business support to leaders of high-growth small businesses.
It specifically addresses the support gap for small enterprises and helps to unlock the economic and job creation for businesses.
Stuart received more than 100 hours of practically focused business and management education.
“The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme has been an incredibly worthwhile experience and I’m delighted to have joined the ranks of their Alumni," said Stuart.
"The knowledge gained from attending the programme means new areas of business growth has been implemented, along with processes and procedures, which are now in place to improve the efficiency of the business.
"In addition, the networking benefits from meeting like minded business leaders has also been of significant value, and this is already opening up new and exciting opportunities for SMARTech energy."
