We have seen first-hand the difference that tapping into expertise can make to the success of a business, but we also know how the price tag can be a turn-off. To connect you with the right advice, at the right time, and at the right price, adviser members have agreed to giving 30 minute consultation calls (via phone or skype) so you can ask questions on a no obligation basis. It's up to you if you want to take the relationship further.
To access consultation calls, you need to be a member and logged in to your account. Once you are logged in head to the people search and find an adviser you would like to speak with. You can request a taster session from the adviser’s profile.
Masterclasses are 30 minute webinars run every Tuesday lunchtime (12:30 - 1pm) where one of our expert adviser members introduces and guides you through an aspect of running a small business.
We aim to cover as many topics as possible, from marketing plans and social media, to pricing and managing freelancers.
They are free for small business members and £10 for non-members.
The resource library contains thousands of pieces of content on a wide variety of business topics. You can search for webinars, eBooks, podcasts, blog posts, presentations and videos. Whether it’s Facebook advertising or managing your cashflow the library is your one stop shop to solve challenges and learn new skills to help your business succeed.
