Why should I attend?

When you’re starting in business it’s important that you get the basics right. This comprehensive, fully funded, two-day workshop will provide information and guidance to help deal with the key issues that are going to be fundamental to setting up and succeeding in business. They are delivered by experienced start-up specialists – real business people who will give you the opportunity to ask questions and invite discussion. The workshops are provided for people planning on starting a business and those who have no previous experience of running a business.

The two day workshop will be delivered over 2 non-consecutive days in four key online sessions of one and a half hours with a plenary session at the end of each day to wrap everything up. Sessions will be supported with downloadable and printable resources which you will then complete in supported individual development sessions. Our Specialists will be available throughout the days to deal with questions and queries.

Lunch and coffee-breaks have been programmed to coincide with the individual development sessions.
