THREE companies in Huddersfield are working together to expand their businesses.
Coaching company YCChange, established four years ago by owner Yvonne Castle, has linked up with Yorkshire Business Growth Ltd and Mosaic Virtual Office in a bid to help YCChange widen its services and provide expertise across both private and public sectors.
Paul Scott, of Yorkshire Business Growth Ltd, has joined a newly-established executive team at YCChange, taking responsibility for strategic marketing.
He is joined by Sarah Gathercole, owner of Mosaic Virtual Office in Huddersfield, who will look after corporate support.
The team – with three other specialists – will transform YCChange.
To mark the development, the business has been re-branded and a new website launched.
Said Yvonne: “This is an exciting transformation of the business.
“I’ve been mulling over how I could expand it – in a sustainable way – to provide a wider range of services to our customers.
“I’ve formed close partnerships with a number of trusted colleagues over the years.
“The people we’ve brought in add a huge amount to the core business and will enable us to compete with some big players in the market.”
Paul said: “Yvonne and I have worked together for a while now and share the same business values.
“I’m looking forward to playing my part in helping Yvonne expand her business significantly over the coming months.
And Sarah added: “We have supported Yvonne for a number of years now and it is a great opportunity for the Huddersfield businesses to link together and help each other.”
YCChange, based at Ainley Top, provides business consultancy, interim management and life coaching services for individuals and businesses as well as local authorities and social housing associations.
