Business Link are holding the business briefings in Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge. The briefings provide the ideal opportunity to either brush up on skills or learn something completely new which you can apply to your business. The themes include:
Developing people: Delivering excellent customer service, performance management and presenting for impact. These courses are ideal for those who are managers and front of line staff looking to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
Planning for growth: This workshop is suited for ambitious small business owners and managers with little available time, it offers training in the tools to take your business to the next level.
IT and commerce: Workshops include email marketing, internet marketing, social networking, website analysis and online selling. These business briefings are great if the internet and social media scare you but you would like your business to have an online presence. No technical knowledge is required, just an open mind!
Legislation: Workshops include health and safety in small businesses, employment law update, employing staff, default retirement age - the key points. Constant change in government legislation means that understanding employment rights can be confusing - but these workshops give you the advice and knowledge for you to proceed confidently in managing your business and employees.
Money and finance: How to pitch for finance and understanding finance for business are the topics covered in this area - ideal for those who want to gain a better understanding of finance in their business.
These course run until November 2011, so keep checking our events page regularly to see when they are going to be held throughout the year.
