You can get the answers to many of your business questions at the Pop Up Business Café.
Starting at 9am through to 12 o'clock. Your allocated time with an expert will be fifty five minutes.
Time slots run from 9am - 9.55am | 10am - 10.55am | 11am - 11.55am

Why it works

The event is about making introductions to people who can help

What should I know before I book?
Tickets are on a first come, first served basis. Businesses and individuals are restricted to seeing no more than one expert per location. This allows us to maximise the number of businesses who can benefit from receiving Free expert advice on the day. In some circumstances where an event may not be fully subscribed experts may become available for you to book a second session. Please check with the Pop Up Business Cafe Facilitator on the day to check the experts availability.
What if I am not good with computers, what other choices do I have to book?
Alternatively you can call the Growth Hub on 03456 047 047.
Or you can drop in without booking and we will aim to fit you in. You will need to book in on arrival and the host will arrange for you to see an expert within 30 minutes, while you grab a coffee, catch up on emails or make some urgent calls.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, you can amend your details at any time online or by contacting the Growth Hub on 03456 047 047.
Do I pay for coffee or tea?
Yes, this is the general principle, but we feel it is a fair price to pay for a coffee and conversation worth having.

I can no longer attend the event I have booked on. Will I be charged?
