One event on September 30, 2021 at 10:00 am
This is a face-to-face workshop (yes, with REAL people, in-person!)
During the workshop there will be the opportunity for networking with the other like-minded people and hear from other business owners.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
This workshop is for anyone that is thinking of starting a business. If you are looking to make a move into self-employment or starting up a business alongside your job, you will find it helpful to prepare a business plan.
Business plans are a way of structuring your ideas and objectives and thinking through your business idea to check it is viable. If you are looking to obtain finance with a loan or investor you will need to present a business plan.
This workshop will allow you the opportunity to ask questions and to discuss your ideas with others in the same position as you. Talking to others in the same boat can be great for building confidence and gaining some inspiration. Delegates find they leave with practical knowledge, new ideas and often some useful contacts too.
