Putting the team firmly on the map this month, Walnut have been featured in the July/August issue of Sheffield business magazine, unLTD!

The feature, entitled ‘Fast Track To Success’, includes a full page interview with our Managing Director, Glen, where he tells the story of how Walnut first started out in the business.

Glen also talks about how Walnut received the help from the Sheffield City Region programme, Launchpad, and how this helped him in making the business become a reality.

Although being founded in Sheffield, Launchpad are also based within Barnsley, and the team here provided Glen with a huge amount of help when starting up Walnut.

Launchpad provides support and guidance for anyone in Barnsley who is looking to start their own business, no matter what their idea is or what stage their business is at.

Offering a series of workshops and networking events, Launchpad also arrange for regular meetings with a fully trained Business Advisor, who can assess your needs and develop a plan of action.

This is something which Glen took part in three years ago, when Walnut was just a little twinkle in his eye.

In the feature, Glen comments: “What Launchpad have done is help massively in everything other than marketing. In terms of employing people, apprenticeships, hiring and staff appraisals, that was something we had no knowledge of.

“After moving into the Digital Media Centre (DMC) I had a big ambition to grow. Since then we’ve been going at 100 miles an hour and I don’t think we could have done that without Launchpad and the DMC’s support.”

Walnut would like to personally thank Launchpad for all of their support in helping to establish our business, and allowing us the opportunity as a Barnsley-based business to grow and develop into a successful, full service marketing agency.
