Onus achieves online success with Mid & East Antrim Business Escalator Programme

Onus were fortunate to take part in the Mid & East Antrim Business Escalator Programme this year. 

As a small business, Onus were particularly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic which affected our ability to deliver our training at a time when it was most needed. Support from the Business Escalator Programme enabled us to develop our training into a series of online webinars and to expand our reach to offer training across the UK and all Ireland.  

Colette Stewart, Onus Chief Executive, says the “Covid Crisis presented many challenges for Onus and we recognised the need more than ever to continue to provide our range of specialist services and time was of the essence.  Thanks to the support from Mid and East  Antrim Borough Council and in particular our Business Client Manager Ally McGarry, we were immediately offered a range of business support programmes to suit our individual needs and enable us to transition from face to face provision to online .  The stepping stone was the Business Escalator programme followed by the Digitial Boost programme to progress us on our journey.  We were also offered additional progression routes and have also availed of Emerge by Intertrade Ireland to assist us with our expansion into the ROI.  This support has ensured not only the future sustainability of Onus but the opportunity for growth.  I would highly recommend all of the programmes and the mentor support has been exceptional.”
