Event description

Description

Do you have the Drive for Success? Find out how to turbo-charge your business or idea now…

Event Overview

Come along to this event to hear from knowledgeable industry leaders specialising in SME services. Learn something new, be aware of the things to consider and have the chance to ask questions specific to you and your business.

Running a business is a journey, not a job. The challenges we encounter never really go away, they just change. Numbers might get bigger but then so do the headaches. The flip side is that starting and developing a successful business is one of the most rewarding things we can do, and not just financially.

Alternative Business Funding Limited and Business West are excited to bring you Drive for Success, the ultimate guide for wherever you are in your business journey.

Why is the Event £5?

We have chosen to add a fee to this event, not for our own benefit but to raise money for our chosen charity, Mental Health UK. Running a business can be hard. It's easy to let work get on top of us, and the stress can eventually lead to further mental health problems.

Mental Health UK is the only mental health charity providing support for people across the UK. We bring together experts from four national charities to improve understanding and provide vital care.

(EventBrite take a fee of £0.98 per ticket)
