Free business masterclasses coming in September


There are three programmes.
The first is Growth, designed for companies that have been trading for more than a year and looking to bounce back after the uncertainty of Covid and Brexit.
The second is Start-up, meant for firms that are less than a year old and, having survived the last few months, are looking to take things to the next level.
The third is Pre-start, which is for anyone thinking about starting a business but isn’t quite sure where to start.
Most run over four to six weeks, but if you’re in the Start-up category you get the option of taking part in an intensive weekend instead.
Whichever package you choose, there is a compelling range of support and the courses are accredited with SFEDI and IOEE. 
Firstly, there are short courses on key business topics – such as marketing, sales, and cashflow – that you can listen to or watch in your own time. 
Second, there are live Zoom calls to network with other local businesses, ask questions of industry experts, and apply your new skills.
Third, there's even a series of radio shows with interviews, top tips, and guidance for SMEs in the area.
… and if that’s not enough, you also get access to a bunch of checklists, templates, and links to make sure that your business ends the year on a high.
There is a strict maximum number of 15 businesses for each programme, which are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis – so it’s essential that you apply now. It’s free and takes less than a minute.
Just  register now .  All we need is your name and email address; leave the rest to us.

If you're still undecided, you can  find out more about the programme and ask us questions on the same page.
We look forward to seeing you in September!
