Starting up your business workshop

Where would you like to be and how are you going to get there?

Everyone asks themselves these questions at different times in their lives, usually at some kind of ‘crossroads’, especially when we are looking for a different future.

This fully funded workshop series over three days, is about unlocking your potential, looking at what you have already accomplished and what you would like to achieve.

Designed to give a solid foundation when planning to start and develop a successful business, the workshops will also help to identify both the potential barriers and benefits and build your resilience and self-belief when considering starting out in business.

Who is this for?

This three-day programme is designed for anyone thinking of starting their own business and will help them explore ideas within a relaxed online environment.
