Business support - workshops and seminars

​We deliver a range of supporting activities aimed at anyone considering self-employment, starting a new business or requiring advice on intellectual property.

Why should I blog?

Do you blog? Why would you blog? Who reads them anyway?

As a business owner you have enough to do, will blogging actually help your business grow?

We’ll talk about the benefits blogging can have for your business, and tips to make it easier for you to get your blog started.

Wherever you are in your business journey, find out how you can spread the word.
