Richmond Council, in partnership with NatWest Bank who are offering impartial support, are holding an event at York House on 21 February from 2.30pm that will give attendees practical advice and information when starting up their own business.

Subjects up for discussion will be the importance of business plans, promoting your business, finance and funding, and reasons why businesses fail.

Speakers on the day include Nick Howe, NatWest Regional Enterprise Manager, and Business and Enterprise officers from Richmond Council, who will discuss the business support services available, grants for pop up shops, support for sustainable business practices and social enterprises.

Cllr Pamela Fleming, Cabinet Member for Business, Community and Culture speaking recently said: “This is a perfect opportunity for people interested in starting their own business to get some first-class professional advice in a relaxed and informal setting. There will be a range of information available in relation to starting your own business, things to consider and where to go for your next step.”
