Business Growth DISCiples

DISCsimple and hgkc are back once more announcing the return of their annual competition One Good Turn…!

Our competition started January last year in response to the Coronavirus. We realised that businesses and their owners had made plans that the lockdowns had rendered impossible and left many wondering what they would do next. DISCsimple and hgkc teamed up with a view to offer businesses the chance to win our services. The mission is to help businesses recover from the fall out of the pandemic and we want to continue this mission this year!  

If you are a business owner with a business plan you can enter to win one of 2 fantastic prizes. 

As the world seemingly returns to normal and people are returning to their offices, we want to offer our support businesses and help leaders discover their team’s hidden superpowers! 

We will have two incredible winners with even bigger prizes worth £5000 each that include: 

‘People Are Your Superpower’
