Our Vision & Values


Is for BGL to provide as many micro, small and new businesses with the confidence, motivation, strategies tactics and tools to create and grow their businesses in the right way for them. There are many talented business owners who are experts in their own field not achieving the success they wish right now and it is usually as a result of not knowing ‘how’ to sell their products or service.


Integrity – Honesty, reliability and honourable behaviour are important to us in all aspects of our lives, we strive to be these things for our clients.

Continuous Development – We are committed to our own personal & professional development as well as that of our clients.
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better do better.” Maya Angelou

Having Fun – We do take ours and our clients businesses seriously, and are professional in our approach, however we also believe that life is way to short for us not to enjoy and have fun in our work. We do our very best to ensure that our clients have fun as well.

Our Team

As well as supporting small businesses with their sales and marketing, we also collaborate with other experts to support us in our business. We consider them as part of our team.
