A major programme of workshops in Milton Keynes and the south east is underway to help anyone who is thinking about starting their own business.
Each workshop lasts three hours and is free to attend, with many being held outside the normal working day, during evenings and even at weekends.
Organised by Business Link South East, the ‘Is it for me?’ workshops aim to shed light on what it takes to get a new business venture off the ground.
Steve Cunnell regional start-up manager at Business Link South East said: “For anyone who thinks they may have a good idea for a new business of their own, this will be an enlightening three hours.
“It will help them understand if they have what it takes and will help them explore the potential for their ideas. It will also highlight how to plug any gaps in their knowledge and how to develop the skills necessary to fulfil their aspirations. Attending one of these workshops, quite simply, could be the start of an exciting and fulfilling new working life.”
Each workshop will present an overview of what is involved in setting up and running a business, as well as the challenges and benefits of running one’s own venture, to help everyone who attends make an informed decision about whether it is the right move to make.
People attending will also learn techniques to develop a clear action plan that will help to ensure a new business venture has every chance of success.
