Reflecting Growth, Competitiveness, and Innovation

16th Apr 2024

It’s RTC’s mission to support businesses to innovate, compete and grow. As Business Development Director I understand that to truly inspire the businesses we work with, we must demonstrate these characteristics within our organisation. As you'd probably expect, I’m hungry for growth and driving forward our competitiveness and innovativeness. Why? Because I believe that we have a unique offer and innate sense of purpose, to support businesses across the country to grow and prosper.

Growth is not merely a metric for us; it's a mindset. This growth mindset permeates every aspect of our operations, reflected in the way that we embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, work incredibly hard for what we believe and seek opportunities to expand our footprint and impact. This mindset has led RTC to significantly expand our team over the past year and to form new, exciting and progressive collaborations with the Tees Valley, West Yorkshire and North East Combined Authorities alongside a deepening relationship with Innovate UK.

Competitiveness is ingrained in our DNA. We understand that high performance demands that we challenge ourselves to push the boundaries and continuously develop our skills and capabilities.  We approach every challenge with a determination to excel, constantly striving to surpass expectations and deliver unparalleled value. We are proud of our expanding team and their diverse range of skills, experiences, and perspectives that allow us to collectively tackle complex problems with creativity and ingenuity. Through strategic partnerships with global organisations, our impact transcends the competitiveness of business, supply chains and regional economies.

For almost two decades, RTC has been dedicated to championing the Skills agenda, making it a cornerstone of our mission to drive economic advancement across the North of England. What sets us apart is our unwavering commitment to bridging the gap between education and business, recognising it as the key to unlocking opportunities and driving sustainable growth. Our unique approach centres on empowering individuals, equipping them with the tools and knowledge they need to thrive in today's dynamic workforce. We believe that by investing in people and cultivating their talents, we can truly level up the region and create a brighter future for all. Join us as we continue to make a difference and empower individuals across the North to reach their full potential.

RTC started life as an innovation agency - innovation isn’t therefore a buzzword for us; it's a way of life. We embrace change as an opportunity to innovate, leveraging emerging technologies and cutting-edge methodologies to drive meaningful outcomes. We recognise the importance of diffusing innovation across the business population and have launched Northern Spotlights to spread the innovation bug. From pioneering new approaches to business support to championing sustainable practices, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of what's possible. By fostering a culture of experimentation and learning, we empower our team to explore bold ideas and disrupt the status quo, fuelling continuous improvement and growth.

But our commitment to growth, competitiveness, and innovation extends beyond our own organisation. We recognise that to truly make a difference, we must expand our social footprint and amplify our impact on people and communities. That's why we're passionate and hungry to not only excel in our core mission but to expand our reach and influence.

By partnering with RTC, policymakers align themselves with a purpose led, non-profit making consultancy that embodies social impact at its core. We don't just talk the talk; we walk the walk, leading by example and setting the standard.

At RTC, we recognise that to drive meaningful change, we must first embody the principles we advocate for. By reflecting behaviours that demonstrate innovation, competitiveness, and growth, we not only expand our own organisation's impact but also inspire others to follow suit. Together, we can create a brighter, more prosperous future for all.

If you're looking to collaborate with a progressive and innovative business support agency that prioritises purpose and social impact, look no further than RTC. Let's partner together to drive positive change and shape a better tomorrow for generations to come.
