Feedback from previous workshops

“If you’re not sure where to start with the business-side of your business, or if you want to clarify where you’re at – this is the place to come. I’d covered several aspects of the course before, but it was put in such a brilliant way I understand it all much better now”

Sarah McNeil, Chiropractor at Chiropractical, Billingshurst 

“I loved this workshop, firstly because it was so informative,, but also because of the opportunity it gave me to talk to other new business owners. This helped me to learn from them and vice versa; it was nice to realise that I’m not alone. Got some great tools to progress my social media, book keeping and business planning for the year(s) ahead. Would highly recommend.”

Harri Flanagan, Massage Therapist at Grapevine Therapies, Storrington

“I really enjoyed the session because it was interactive and not just sitting and listening, which made things easier to take on board”

Lee Crutcher, Painter and Decorator at LPC Build, Horsham

I would recommend it to anyone who has a business already or thinking of starting up a business. I am looking forward to future follow-up workshops””
