Budding entrepreneurs have the chance to learn from business brains at a conference next month.

The Richmond Entrepreneurs Forum offers a series of seminar sessions by entrepreneurs from Richmond Chamber of Commerce.

The conference, with an opening address from MP Zac Goldsmith, will feature a series of seminar sessions aimed at helping entrepreneurs, before a live set from a jazz band.

Mr Goldsmith said: “The chamber’s business skills forum is offering entrepreneurs another great opportunity to meet the experts, obtain advice, and improve skills.

“The evening will provide a real boost for struggling enterprises.”

Guests will get the chance to network with business experts and win a one-day course at Richmond Business School in the raffle.

The conference will take place at the Richmond Business School on Wednesday, February 5, from 6pm to 9.30pm.

Head of Richmond Chamber of Commerce Anne Newton said: “Local MP Zac Goldsmith is opening this event and Vince Cable MP supporting it. It comprises facilitated sessions with business experts and then a party with music and finger buffet following the entrepreneur workshops.

“So why not take a step out of your business, meet other local businesses and find some informed inspiration locally?”
