PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE THINKING OF STARTING A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE OR CO-OPERATIVE. IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS CONSULTANT/ADVISOR WE WILL BE OFFERING SEPARATE SPECIFIC TRAINING FOR YOU FROM MARCH 2024.

Delivered by Helen Hoyle from SEE Ahead, this workshop looks at:

  • what you do well
  • developing your business idea
  • income generation
  • starting a basic business plan

A Zoom link will be provided a week before the event. All delegates will be provided with an electronic workbook which will be sent out with the joining instructions.

A paper workbook may also be beneficial for those who are visually impaired, those accessing the workshop via their phone or where English is a second language and seeing materials ahead would help. Please tell us about your accessibility needs on the order form.
