About The Event

Is 2019 the year you start your business?

The hardest part about starting up is starting out. This is why we have organised two Start-up Saturday’s to get you motivated and full of knowledge so you can make a giant leap towards creating your business!

It doesn’t matter what your idea is or what your circumstances are – we are here to help you turn your ideas into reality – no matter how big or small!

We will be running two Start Up Saturdays in October to ensure you have access to all the essential information you need to take the business forward with confidence:

Part 1: Business Planning 5th October 2019

Part 2: Marketing & Promotion 26th October 2019


Today is all about Marketing & Promotion

This Saturday will work flexibly to your needs. You can attend all day or just come to the sessions you want to attend. We will also have 1-2-1 appointments with a Business Advisor available if you’d prefer to speak to someone in person.

9:30am Arrivals & Registration.

10:00am: Developing a Marketing Strategy

Marketing your business is just as important as Business Planning because if no one knows about your business they can’t buy from you. We will take you through the process of developing your marketing strategy so you can understand your target market & promote to them successfully.

1:00pm: Creating a Brand for your Business & Pitching Successfully

A strong brand can stand out from the crowd & create customer loyalty. We will teach you all the things you need to do to create a strong brand that is consistent and appealing. We will also get you practising how to communicate & pitch your business successfully.

3:00pm: Open Networking – A chance to chat with the attendees & network

1-2-1 Appointments: Want to discuss your ideas with a Business Advisor? We will have appointments available throughout the day. These will need to be booked in advance & will be given on a first come first served basis. Please call our office on 01226 773003 to book & make sure you mention its for Start Up Saturday.
