Jolly British was founded in 2008 by Emma Horn, with a vision to supply organisations with effective business support to help them grow and prosper. The company has gone from strength to strength purely through client referral and word of mouth.
The uniqueness of Jolly British is our team - highly knowledgeable individuals, each with a strong skill set, who all share a willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ and are passionate about helping others succeed and businesses flourish.
Strength: Strong business acumen in development and growth... and tireless enthusiasm!
Weakness: Coffee, Whiskey and Champers
Emma worked in the business development and training events sector for several years. Emma gained her immense passion and inspiration for business support from seeing the positive difference that effective business support and knowledge transfer can make to the development and growth of a business. This was the trigger for the start of Jolly British Business Support.
Emma’s acute ability to understand the needs and required infrastructure of growing a business enables the team at Jolly British to provide seamless support for each client effectively and efficiently.
On a day to day basis Emma ensures that all clients businesses and projects are on schedule, working with her team to help deliver all business tasks, projects, training events and financial control.
