Last month Sheila Hume from Blue Hen Flowers asked if we could run a short workshop offering business advice for small creative businesses. She even offered to host with the promise of coffee and cake, so how could we say no!
Sheila grows and supplies fresh flowers for weddings, parties and sells to local farm shops. She also hosts a number of flower arranging workshops. What started as a hobby has now grown into a flourishing and busy business.
When Sheila approached us last month, she wanted help. With the business growing she wanted to make sure her time was being used efficiently and avoid that feeling of being overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done when you are a small business with limited resources.
With this in mind, we have put together a short workshop course where we will cover tips on maintaining and growing your business when it is just you. Read on to find out more and how to book a place.
Small Business Workshop for Creative Companies
Wednesday 11 October
9.30am - 1pm
Want to take your business up a gear? Are you keen to work more efficiently? Do you want advice on the best use of Social Media?
Then come to this workshop with Chloe Scragg of Executive Support Consultants.
Now a true 'company of one', she helps time starved freelancers and small businesses with limited resources to navigate their way through the myriad of tools and systems available on the market in order to grow their business and reduce the feeling of being completely overwhelmed.
Chloe can share with you first hand experience and case studies of where to focus your energies, how to utilise your best skills, the importance of up-skilling, the need to find the proactive people to help you and which tools will aid your business, and which ones will waste your time.
If like me you just want to grow flowers (/make truffles/run a holiday let/make jewellery) but can't keep up with all that needs to be done come to an interactive morning with time to share experiences and problems over coffee and cake with other wonderful small businesses.
