Dan Lamoon: Colab Creation

Dan Lamoon set up his own business 18 months ago and has recently opened an office in Nottingham, in addition to another site in Leicester. He has also started to employ full-time members of staff. He looked to the Elevator series of workshops to make sure he was investing in the right areas of the business.

Support Outcomes

Specialist mentors gave access to insights and improved business planning
Improved sales process and 40% increase on conversion rate
Improved problem solving and team building

His company, Colab Creation, creates promotional videos for firms and also works with educators to create training videos for various distance learning courses.

Dan said: “The business has recently undergone quite a lot of growth and I really wanted to make sure I was investing and focusing on the right areas to expand the business.”

He signed up to the Elevator series of workshops, run by Nottingham Business School for the Big House programme, which he heard about when he was establishing Colab Creation’s Nottingham office.

He has also been able to put into practice some of the sessions he experienced during the workshops, particularly around staff mentoring.
