BSc (Hons) Business and Management, 2016
An entrepreneur from the age of 11, Greg Anderton sowed the seeds of his gardening business at primary school, but it was his time as a student at Edge Hill that helped Leafy Lytham to really bloom.
As well as giving him a thorough grounding in business and the specific knowledge of accounting and human resources he needed to manage a growing company, Greg also benefited from networking, mentoring and support from Edge Hill staff. Tailored work experience and the opportunity to participate in the Federation of Small Business Connect Competition for young entrepreneurs, hosted at the Business School, gave him the confidence to plan a major expansion of his company, taking Leafy Lytham from garden design and bespoke displays to a full retail and lifestyle experience.
“My degree has given me the ability to provide employment for others and to meet the needs of clients, who have specific requirements and budgets, and help them to fulfil their horticultural dreams.”
