Each workshop has been designed to respond to a challenge or need currently faced by firms trying to grow and we hope these free in-depth sessions will give them the skills and knowledge they need to break through any barriers and take their business to the next level.”

Each workshop is offered completely free of charge and will run from 9am until 12pm. Demand is expected to be high so early booking is recommended.
