FREE BUSINESS CONSULTANCY WITH LEADING INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANCY


2. Firstport to run free consultancy day with leading consultancy firm! Last year Firstport ran our first large scale event for social enterprises in conjunction with consultancy firm PriceWaterhouse-Cooper and Scottish Business in the Community. This event match 23 social enterprises with a team of 6 consultants as part of the largest skill share event held in Scotland to date. This intensive day of free support and guidance from highly skilled teams received fantastic feedback…..


“Just thought I’d congratulate you on a great session yesterday afternoon, we all got a lot out of it and will be actioning many of the ideas over the next few weeks”.


“The day was really well organised and very worthwhile”


“It really blew me away and ….. I can fully appreciate the benefits of the entire day. I spoke to one of our advisers and told him about the day, his reply was:,’are you sure that you weren’t dreaming’,’did that actually happen’ and ‘do you know how much that would have cost!’


This feedback was not part of official evaluation forms but came from emails sent in after the day. It really was incredible and we are pleased to say WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!


We are still finalising dates though this is likely to be 29^th Sept and will be in Central Scotland. To take part and get the most from the day you will need:


· Two people at a senior level from your enterprise to attend the day
· A clear business issue you are currently dealing with for discussion
· A business plan for your organisation


If you wish to register for this please contact Firstport on 0131 220 0511 or email elaine@firstport.org.uk


We also run similar events on a smaller scale throughout the year. Let us know if you would be interested in participating in these.
