'Business Planning - Let's get started' - Workshop & Networking

Are you an entrepreneur who needs to create some cohesion and momentum to your business activities?

Are you an entrepreneur who needs to get an investment?

If your answer is 'Yes' to any of those two questions - this is a workshop for you!

"Very clear and concise information well-presented and easy to understand"

This workshop covers the purpose of business planning, the structure of business plans and provides examples of appropriate content.

Kim Dolman - business consultant with great experience in growing businesses will explain:

- the part that business plans play in the lifecycle of start up businesses

- what they look like

- who they are for and how they are used.

Kim will show you how they can be applied to add value to a business and to attract the investment.

The seminar is interspersed with numerous exercises and there are plenty of opportunities for questions.

By the end of workshop you will have the template, the tools and the confidence you need to create a great plan for your business.

We have nice private room at C&B in Paternoster square. If we exceed the capacity there will be alternative venue available.

After the workshop, we will network as usual till late :)

If you are planning to pitch this will be an opportunity for you to check if your business plan contains all that is needed before submitting it.

All RSVP by 5th August will be free as part of early birds offer and regular £5 charge will apply after.

    Interesting talk and great group of people. Pity we had to skip through some of the more in-depth slides of the presentation due to time constraints though.

      Glad you liked it Ellie. Thank you for the comment. Kim and I talked after the event and we agreed to have another workshop with him but bit longer where you would actually do work and during a day not evening so, everyone will be able to focus fully. We are planning lots of interesting events in the near future. D.

      Hi Ellie. Yes, I debated whether to cut down the slides to fit the time window but on balance I thought it better to give yo all the slides and pickout the major points on the night. If you have any questions on any of the slides then just give me a call.

    hi All, could you please help me with tips how to find the place as I'm not familiar with the area? On Google map it shows Saintsbury's in Holborn when I use the link, but when typed the name of the place is it's next to St Paul's station.

    many thanks,
