New business podcast for the Black Country on the hunt for guests

A new podcast has launched to help local businesses to continue to grow despite the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

Hosted by the UK’s highest rated business coach, Andy Hemming, alongside business owner and fellow coach, Lewis Haydon, the Black Country Business Podcast offers practical advice on growing a successful business while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

With a series of interviews already confirmed with leading figures throughout the Black Country, hosts Andy and Lewis are now looking for more inspiring business owners and entrepreneurs willing to tell their story.

Andy, who founded Action Coach Black Country in 2007 and has been declared the UK’s highest-rated business coach four years running, said: “We’ve supported hundreds of businesses over the past 13 years, close to two-thirds of whom have more than doubled in size. Through the podcast we’re able to reach even more businesses and offer them practical advice and hard-won experience on how to grow during difficult times. 

“There’s no doubt that Covid-19 presents a whole series of challenges, but it has also seen a number of owners take stock and identify new routes to growth. Through regular podcasts we’re able to keep everyone updated about the latest initiatives and developments happening within the region’s businesses.”

The Black Country Business Podcast can be found on Apple and Spotify or streamed directly from
