The day will consist of Justine and Lynne telling their own stories plus workshops from business experts, a ‘Start-Up Surgery’ from Nat West Bank and one-to-one coaching on your challenges and the tools to take you forward by the SEED Coaches.
During the day you will have the opportunity to develop your ideas, receive professional marketing advice on how to take your business to its customers and learn how your personal values can be a crucial part of your brand.
Whether your business idea is big or small, learn how to use the SEED values in growing an enterprise that works in partnership with your community, whether your on-line Mumsnet/SEED community, your local business club or your local neighbourhood.
Everyone attending this SEED Day for Mumsnet will receive a free B.Hive membership worth £200 giving you access to B.Hive women’s business clubs as well as Regus business lounges around the country.
You will also have access to on-line mentoring after the event from successful SEED entrepreneurs as well as access to becoming part of on and off-line SEED Coaching Circles. www.seednetwork.com

We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives.
A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your responses.
To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.
This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas.
If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.
One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
