Business Planning (1)

31st October - Business Planning

Deciding on your legal structure and what your business plan should include

 

Part of a series of workshops run by Lola Stafford Consulting: 

 

We are offering a series of community workshops free of charge to residents and local groups who are interested in starting up a Social or Community Enterprise which will have positive impact in the Broadland area and would like practical support in a relaxed and interactive environment. You may feel ready to get started or just thinking about
what you would like to achieve - it is also appropriate for groups who are already constituted but need to find ways to become financially sustainable.
We'll start with a taster session, so you can get a general overview followed by targeted workshops and finish the programme with a "surgery session" in the new year to support your progress. You can choose to book the series or individual workshops according to what you feel you need.
