It surpassed my expectations.  I can’t believe it was free for me to attend.  The course contained the exact information I needed and has given me much more confidence to go about planning the launch of my business next year.

Really beneficial. Would highly recommend! I got a lot more out of this than I had imagined and found it informative and enjoyable. Good variety of attendees helps, as we also learn from each other too! Liked the fact it was spread over a few days rather than 3 day course in one go.

Comments on the course;

This course is invaluable to anybody either with a fledgling business, or considering starting up a new business.  It has given me so much to think about and consider.  I already feel much more confident about taking the step into business,  I found the tax and payroll material especially useful, although I would definitely be looking for an accountant! Time spent on each subject was sufficient.  breaks were well timed and a good length.  Each subject was beneficial to my business. The tutors were all very knowledgeable in their particular fields.  The presentations were well organised, with appropriate handouts.  All questions were answered fully.

Comments on the course;

Excellent content; speed of delivery just right. A Little more on business plans would be useful but there are good resources on Growth Hub and Chamber website.  Tony was very approachable and the course atmosphere was friendly and supportive.  All questions asked effectively. Really enjoyed the course!

I get on very well with Victoria and Alan and I know and trust the company.  Having Victoria at the end of the phone and knowing the advice I get from her keeps us legal and up to date helps me sleep at night.
