The BEST Growth Hub Business Workshop Programme is funded by BEST and delivered by LAR Consultancy in partnership with other Essex Innovation Programme Mentors. BEST Growth Hub was launched in October 2015 to function as a ‘one-stop shop’ for business support such as: access to training, finance, marketing and local authority services. It aims to improve and simplify the Essex business support landscape and increase the overall take-up of business support. For more information please visit: www.BESTgrowthhub.org.uk. If you are booking onto a 3 hour workshop please also review the wider programme as often 2x3 hour workshops on a related subject are being delivered at the same venue on the same day.
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL as places are limited.
On completing a workshop you will automatically be referred to one of the BEST Growth Hub Navigators, who will be able to signpost you to further advice and any training that you might require.
Each individual may attend workshops up to a maximum of 21 hours in total.
Each business can send a maximum of 2 members of staff on each workshop.
In order to qualify for a place on a workshop the employer/business / entrepreneur must be based in Essex.
Please note that a workshop may not take place if there are not a minimum of 10 attendees.
What is this workshop about?
This is aimed at businesses already trading and wishing to grow. This is a practical session where you will also learn from your peers. Find out about how to conduct a SWOT Analysis (identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) in your business and carry out your own with support. You will also develop an understanding of the different types of risks that could affect your business and strategies to minimize or manage the level of these. These techniques should help you avoid situations before they arise.
