Bolton-based insurance broker, Primecover, has achieved a 37% increase in profit over the last two months after attending a Leadership Skills course with Bury-based MLP Training.
Established nine years ago by managing director, Sharon Bailey, Primecover specialises in property insurance for both residential and commercial sectors, including niche services for unoccupied buildings.
The company has expanded year-on-year over the past decade, reporting a 26.6 per cent growth during the past 12 months. Now, following strategic changes made as a result of the MLP training course, Primecover has supercharged its growth plans, substantially increasing its sales success.
Sharon commented: “I attended the MLP Leadership Skills course with our Operations Manager, Michelle Neary, and the first task of the day was to identify our business goals and then look at ways in which we could achieve them through strategic planning.
“I have now taken a step back from the day to day business as a result of the training, and moved to a much more business development and key management role, with my team stepping up to manage the day to day.
“The change has been massive for me after spending the past nine years building the business and the past thirty years working with clients, but it has paid off in terms of both growth and profitability.”
The Leadership Skills course is not the first MLP training that Sharon and her team have attended, and the company also credits MLP with developing its sales team and business development skills.
Mike Le Put, owner and founder of MLP added: “Making a big change can be a scary prospect for SMEs like Primecover, but implementing change aligned to a goal-oriented growth strategy is an essential part of long-term planning. We’re delighted to hear that change has been so positive for Primecover and wish them every continued success as they look forward to celebrating 10 years in business next year.”
