Event description

Description

Are you a small to medium sized business?

Do you have an ambition to...

  • Grow?
  • Develop new products or services?
  • Improve existing processes or investigate new market opportunities?

YES! Then this fully funded 2 day workshop can help you.

Our workshop will help you to redefine your business proposition by highlighting barriers to growth and identifying opportunities for change. By the end of the workshop you will have developed a tailored Action Plan for your organisation which will plot activity and provide an internal assessment of company strengths or areas for development.

These masterclasses are delivered on behalf of the Innovate UK family and European Regional Development Fund by the Enterprise Europe Network and RTC North.
