Designed to support entrepreneurs, this in-depth workshop will help you to create and develop a robust, investment-ready business plan and financial forecast.

During the workshop you'll learn how to write a solid business plan using the business model canvas, create sales projections and identify sources of start-up and scale-up funding.

You will also receive a copy of financial templates which will helps you to create a cashflow forecast, startup cost and personal survival budget and there is an opportunity to network with like-minded people over a buffet lunch and discuss your business goals in a supportive environment.

Key areas covered in this one-day workshop include:

  • Producing a robust business plan
  • Branding and marketing
  • Sourcing finance
  • Managing cash flow, profit and loss, and book keeping
  • Creating sales projections

“The business planning workshop helped me look at my business from the outside. As a business owner this can be difficult as you get lost in the day-to-day running of the business and struggle to do the important things. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone that has started a business or is thinking of starting one.

The workshop gave me some great ideas about ways to structure our business plan and what we need to be focusing on. The advice on finance and how to carry out a cash flow forecast correctly was also useful, and I took away a lot of tips on what to look at when marketing our business, defining what it is we offer, and identifying strengths and weaknesses that I didn’t even realise we had.” - Dave Keay, K.P Garage & Bodyshop 

All workshops are held at Leigh Court, Bristol.
