A packed programme of events advising start-up, small and medium sized businesses is being organised for South Kesteven District Council’s Enterprise Week from March 17-21.
Talks and presentations will include how YouTube can promote business, the best ways to use Twitter and Facebook, along with tips on finance, employment, legal and marketing.
It is set to be one of the biggest enterprise events ever staged by SKDC as new skills and business improvement are covered in sessions across Grantham, Bourne, the Deepings and Stamford.
A particular highlight of the week is the area finals of the Young Enterprise competition, which will take place during a networking event at Stoke Rochford Hall on Wednesday March 19.
The evening is organised by Total Networking and will include a keynote speech from leading local entrepreneur, Scott Weavers-Wright, former Chief Executive of Kiddicare.
Recognising technology as a key element in business growth, there will be demonstrations of the latest equipment available to businesses in the area through local technology hubs, including state of the art 3D scanning, printing and laser engraving.
Meanwhile local independent retailers can benefit from retail revolution seminars led by Aimee Holland of ‘Grow my Profit’, who states: “Utilising a few simple steps, I can guarantee that we can increase the profit of retail businesses.”
Most sessions have a small admission fee of £2.50 and are being held at different times of the day to maximise opportunities for businesses to attend, while many will be recorded and uploaded to the website as webinars for anyone missing a seminar of interest.
Enterprise Week 2014 is being held in partnership with local business organisations including Total Networking, Grantham Business Club, Bourne Business Chamber, Stamford Town Team and Chamber, Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses.
