Building the business jigsaw

Workshops that provide the "how" as well as the "what"

You need to know about so much when you're running a business and there are plenty of consultants offering advice.

BUT how many times do you seek advice and are told "what you should do is..." but not the "how to do it"?

This is where we aim to be different. We provide not only the advice but also practical training and support to help you do what you need to. Our workshops cover many aspects of the work involved in running a small businesses, charities and group. We cover marketing, sales, running the business as well as IT applications. The workshops are usually hands-on so that you get a chance to practice and gain confidence and skills to "do it".

If you need support to plan, start or grow your business, have a look at the workshops we offer.

Workshop format - in person and virtual

Under normal circumstances, the workshops last half-day and take place at Bloom.Space in Malvern. The training room, which you can see below, is bright and welcoming. Refreshments are provided at the start and during the workshop.

Since the COVID-19 restrictions we have swapped to running virtual workshops. The format remains unchanged other than the length of the workshop (and the price). It has been reduced to a maximum of one and a half hours, as it is difficult to stare at a screen for longer than that.  As a result, some of the subjects have been split into more than one workshop so that the pace of the workshop remains reasonable. You also have to provide your own refreshments!

There are no more than 8 attendees at any workshop

The value of a Small Business Clinic workshop comes from the interactive and informative environment. We make sure that there is plenty of scope for discussion and addressing problems specific to your business. We aim to put you at your ease and want you to realise that no question is a stupid question.

Workshop categories

Our workshops falls into one of three broad categories based on the stage you have reached in your business.
