In this practical first of a 2-part workshop program, you will learn about how to approach the numbers and business structure by covering the elements listed below. This reason for splitting into 2 is to offer a shorter time frame for attendees (as time is a precious commodity for us all).

Post the workshop everyone will get the template and business guide created in a bespoke manner geared to the attendees present and e-mailed to you.
“It was a pleasure to attend Pete's workshop (through the British Library) on marketing opportunities. His ability to share information applicable to a wide variety of industries is impressive, and I really valued the way he answered specific questions knowledgeably and with clarity. Highly recommend!"
Pete is a bundle of energy and ideas who is as passionate about your business doing well as you are. He has a lot of experience with fashion / textiles and helped me to make some decisions around pricing and stock that felt spot on for where my business is at.
