Help for businesses through workshop programme

While the weather has been far from seasonal, business owners can still shine brightly with Business Gateway’s workshop programme.

With a host of seminars on topics ranging from marketing and social media to exporting and taking on employees, new and existing entrepreneurs in Angus can learn new skills and pick up invaluable knowledge and information.

Running in August and September, the programme is designed to address the challenges faced by businesses, encourage networking and arm the local business community with the tools needed to be a success.

Workshop subjects, held at Angus Centre for Enterprise, Angus College, Arbroath, include Marketing on Wednesday, August 19, from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and Financial Records on Tuesday, August 25, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Nicki Mearns, operations manager at Business Gateway, said: “Our fully funded workshops add real value to any business whether it’s a start-up or growing enterprise. Focusing on the issues that matter, our events can benefit businesses of all sizes at all stages of development.

“Research shows that businesses that have engaged with Business Gateway have a significantly better chance of surviving beyond three years than the national average and we believe that our workshops contribute to this.”
