Masterclass Programme 2009
For those more familiar with business planning or those at very early stage indeveloping their initiative these 2 hour sessions have been designed for those who are not able to attend an 8 day course and want advice on specific areas of development rather than business planning as a whole.They will provide you with knowledge, basic tools and methods to think about your enterprise.
In order that we can run these events on a frequent basis and at no cost we will be running these classes in our meeting rooms and will ask participants to bring lunch along if they are attending two master classes in a day. You can book in to both or one of the classes in a day. We have grouped them simply to enable those from further away to be able to attend both should they wish.
Dates for upcoming events are listed separately.
