A SPECIALISED marine business advice service has been launched to help organisations across the Solent.

Solent-based firm GetSet has created the new service,

Helen Stratton, marketing strategy director, said GetSet has been developing specialised marine and maritime consulting over the past two years following a surge in demand.

‘We’ve been asked more and more to help local marine-based firms improve their marketing, their finance, and their operations,’ she said.

GetSet has been supported in the past by the government’s regional development fund.

But the success of the local team, especially in helping companies develop their marketing and sales, and raising funding for expansion, has enabled them to continue as a fully-fledged commercial organisation.

Helen and her senior colleagues Vicki Dunn-Mussert and Ray Cobb, have delivered over 200 intensive business builder workshops.

The new marine consultancy service will be on show at Seawork at Mayflower Park, Southampton, from June 13 to 15.
