Description

FREE two-day Grow Your Business course

Are you a small or medium-sized Gloucestershire business that wants to grow?

This is your opportunity to benefit from a FREE intensive two-day workshop that will help you take your business to the next level. The course covers everything from business strategy, finances and marketing, to legal issues and HR, and you’ll leave with an action plan that will empower you to make positive changes in your business right away.

This FREE workshop is a partnership between the Business Kitchen and the University of Gloucestershire’s Start and Grow Enterprise (SaGE) project. To be eligible to take part, you must be a Gloucestershire-based SME which has been trading for less than three years.

The bootcamp will be held on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 April 2018 from 9.30am to 4.30pm, at Trent Lodge in Cirencester.

This effective and practical bootcamp will give you time to reflect on your business and discover:

  • Valuable insights and techniques for refining your business plan and strategy.
  • Top tips to increase the effectiveness of your marketing and sales.
  • The basics of your financials.
  • How to overcome the obstacles that are stopping you from growing.
  • What support is available to you, and from whom.

The two-day workshop includes lunch and refreshments, as well as the chance to network with likeminded business owners.

Closing date for ticket sales: 18th April.

The course is funded by Start and Grow Enterprise (SaGE) – a University of Gloucestershire project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). SaGE supports the growth of Gloucestershire-based entrepreneurs and start-ups (trading up to 3 years) through free training, events, networks and resources.

Award winning trainers, The Business Kitchen, provide training and support for SMEs in Gloucestershire through a range of workshops and training programmes.


As this course is funded, we need to check the eligibility of all attendees and so completion of a short online Joining Form and Diagnostic is needed to secure your place. You will be emailed by the SaGE team (sage@glos.ac.uk) with links to these forms following submission of your booking on Eventbrite.
