The Bridge Project's request to ProHelp Suffolk was for help and strategic advice to create a five year business plan. Kevin Ward, Business Consultant of Conatus Associates Ltd, has been working with the Project to develop their plan, and has also offered assistance in other areas as well.
The Project also needed help with their PR/Marketing Plan and Paul Mackman of the Mackman Group continues to work on developing a clear marketing strategy for it. Working closely with The Bridge Project, Paul has also offered work placements and taken an active role in many of its activities. He is also often to be found with his camera at their various events.
