Master Class: How to make your new business a success

November 14, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Date 14th November 2018 | 9.30am – 4.30pm | Venue: Mercury House, Nottingham NG7 7FN

In this Master Class we will provide you with the insight to see your business through the critical first year of trading and take a look beyond year one.

You must be a trading business to qualify for attending this highly interactive Master Class. Our guest speakers, successful in their own fields, both started from nothing and are now into their critical post year one trading period. One of the best ways to learn is from those who have been there and done it, their businesses range from unique vehicle finding to digital marketing, and as you would expect, both will be sharing their experiences and taking questions.
Other topics covered during the day which are critical to your business success include:

  • being an effective leader
  • creating an effective team
  • how to make the best use of your time.

Business advisors will be present at the end of this Master Class to book appointments with delegates if required.
