Go for growth at business workshops in Charnwood

  • Incharnwood Showcase

Entrepreneurs and businesses looking to grow in Charnwood are invited to a series of information workshops.

Three ‘Going for Growth’ workshops have been organised by inCharnwood, an initiative by Charnwood Borough Council, and CASE, a Leicestershire-based business support service.

The workshops are free to attend and will be led by CASE. They will give advice on finance, operations and marketing. They will be run by experienced business owner, tutor and enterprise support practitioner, Ian Wilson.

Councillor Eric Vardy, the Council’s Lead Member for Planning and Inward Investment said: “These workshops are a great opportunity for local businesses in Charnwood looking to take the next steps along the pathway of success. “

“We want to support local businesses to grow in the borough, and these workshops will provide advice and a chance to make valuable connections with other like-minded entrepreneurs facing similar challenges and opportunities.”

Ian Wilson said: “Growth is never by mere chance, it is the result of working to address all processes within a business including operations, marketing, finance and personnel.

“CASE works with businesses to build sustainable and profitable enterprises and these workshops will allow local businesses to gain information, exchange ideas and move forward into growth.”

The workshops are part of the Leicester Business Festival 2017, which runs from October 23 to November 3 and celebrates the best of business from across the region.

The free workshops will be held at Charnwood Borough Council’s main offices in Southfield Road, Loughborough. The topics and dates are:

  • Marketing: Monday, October 23
