How it all started…
Broad Signs was established in 1998 by Sean Broad, a young entrepreneur who was keen from an early age to carve a career in the industry.
After a few years’ experience, Sean looked at the start up options available at the time and found support with Prince’s Trust.Sean attended initial seminars and courses recommended by Prince’s Trust and after successfully completing them Sean wrote his business plan and was given an opportunity to present his business idea to a Prince’s Trust panel. This was received well and The Trust agreed to loan him the necessary funding to purchase the equipment required which led to the birth of Broad Signs in May 1998.
Nearly 20 years on and Broad Signs is continuing to flourish and Sean now has an apprentice at his side to continue the cycle just as he started all those years ago.
