Training

I have over 18 years experience in designing and delivering entrepreneurship and social enterprise programmes and workshops. My specialist subjects are business planning, financial planning and strategic planning. I offer a range of options that include designing and delivering a full programme to delivering a one-off workshop.  All programmes and workshops are developed in consultation with the client or participants, to ensure the learning objectives are met. My training style is participative and consultative and my workshops are supported with training manuals and relevant templates and tools, such as business plan templates and financial forecast templates. Examples of training that can be provided are:

  • Programmes: Starting a Business, Starting a Social Enterprise, Business Growth, Exploring Enterprise, Student Startup 
  • Standalone workshops: How to Write a Business Plan, Preparing Financial Forecasts, Strategic Planning
