By the end of the fourth workshop, you’ll have covered:

  • The importance of goal setting so that you don’t get blown off course
  • How to build the systems that you need to grow a viable business
  • Understanding what your value proposition is to your customer
  • The best way to market your business
  • How to be comfortable in sales situations
  • Financial management systems that you need to have in place
  • How to use the Business Model Canvas to build a business model

Designed for people based in Cheshire and Warrington:

  • and who have an idea for a business but haven’t yet taken the plunge
  • are brand new business owners who set up under 12 months ago and need a little help
