About Us

My name is Kate Goodman and I am the founder of Kalida Business Solutions. I set the company up in order to provide advice and guidance to small and medium sized businesses in the UK. I did this because I am passionate about seeing businesses thrive and grow.
More than 80% of business in the UK are considered to be SME’s and more than 100 businesses close every day because they couldn’t survive. I believe we can change that and by providing the right support and advice at the right time many businesses can go on to grow and succeed.
I have extensive experience of running businesses and helping them to grow and I have decided to put those skills to work through Kalida Business Solutions.
I’m so passionate about small business that I have become a Princes Trust Business Mentor in order to help young people achieve success.
Kalida Business Solutions aims to provide support through a network of experience and knowledge, it’s purpose is to stand alongside a business while it learns to fly.
