Free business workshops are available in Richmond this month.

Launched earlier this summer, the Richmond Enterprise Challenge ‘Step Up. Start Up. Scale Up’ is a new, free businesses support programme, launched by the Council and delivered by CPG Executive Consulting Ltd.

Places are still available at five sessions, where attendees can learn including how to successfully trade in a street market, use LinkedIn to generate sales and understand the key challenges of import and export.

The programme aims to give new businesses the best chances of surviving in early stages and enable them to successfully grow.

Cllr Geoff Acton, Cabinet Member Business, Economy and Employment said: “Already businesses across the borough are benefiting from our free workshops and seminars. And there is a lot more to come!

“There is something for all businesses – whether they are new and just starting up or if they are well established and just want some advice.

“Our new Step Up, Start Up, Scale Up programme is our most comprehensive support package ever. And most of all, workshops and support is free!”
