Running a business is a lot of work. You went into business because you’re good at something. You might be good at installing electrical systems, or making chocolates, or selling houses – or something completely different. However for the business to run well, you also need to know about:
- Social Media, Marketing & Sales
- Book-keeping and Finances
- Websites, Computers & Technology
- People & Management
- Planning & Growth
Sometimes it can seem like your business runs you, instead of you running the business. The Chamber can help, with business skills and training. By learning how to run your business better, you can do more: more profit, more time, or more resources to grow your business. You will have more control and more options. The Chamber offers:
- Essential Business Skills Training in Groups
- Links to Online Training & Information
- Focus on Business Circles
- Setting Up a Business: Some Basics
- Check our Calendar for other Learning Events such as Workshops & Lunch’n Learns
