Event Details

Free Business Best Start Programme 

Are you thinking about starting up a business, or have set up in business and been trading for under 12 months but feel you need some direction?  If so, then Menta has a limited number of spaces on a programme of support funded by the EU (take this opportunity whilst it lasts!).   

Overview

We cover:

  • What is it like to be self employed - pros and cons
  • Legal status - which to choose
  • Working from home
  • Understanding the reality of your business
  • Defining your REAL customers
  • Marketing 
  • Financing your start-up
  • Legal aspects
  • Bullet point Business Plan (templates will be emailed after the workshop)
  • Free further support options
  • The next stage 

Once this workshop has been completed, you are eligible to attend the Best Start Marketing and Book Keeping workshops. 

 Teas & coffees will be provided.

Delegate quotes include:

‘A very worthwhile series of courses which has given me a great start for my business to succeed.  I was utterly terrified of book keeping, but now feel confident to tackle my tax return!’

                Phil – Commercial Photographer

‘Relaxed, informative environment.  Courses delivered by friendly, experienced, approachable and highly qualified people.  A great ‘start’ for anyone wanting to develop a new business.’

               Jill - Florist

‘I found these workshops invaluable to starting up my business.  Very informative, lots of help and advice to assist my business.’

                Natasha - Virtual Assistant and Book Keeper 

Parking is limited at Eastern Way and attendees are advised to arrive 10/15 minutes early to avoid any disruptions to the course. 

Course Trainer:  Jo Garden

 

 

Jo has been a part-time Business Advisor within Enterprise Agencies for over 12 years.  Since the early 1990’s she has also been self-employed, during which time she established 5 quite diverse businesses.  Three have been sold and are still in operation.  


Jo’s first business started after she became redundant from a 16-year career with a pharmaceutical company.  She then attended some of the very early Menta business planning workshops and has kept in touch with Menta over all these years.  Her presentation style tends to be non-academic (being diagnosed with Dyslexia in her 20’s!) and she encourages a simple approach to moving a business idea forward
