VELOCITY GROWTH HUB EVENTS

WORKSHOPS

Our business skills workshops will equip ambitious businesses, like yours, to grow successfully.

Velocity’s interactive workshops cover a range of skills and topics you tell us you want to improve. All workshops are run by professional consultants and trainers, experienced in a range of industry sectors.

You will leave the workshop with new skills, knowledge and tools for you to take back and use in your business. A Velocity business adviser will be on-hand to help you put into action your learning from the workshops.

Speak to your business adviser about the skills workshops that will help you, or book directly below. If you’re not sure if your business is enrolled on the Velocity Growth Hub ERDF project, contact the Velocity team on 0300 01234 35.
