It's our mission not just to bring Enterprise Nation readers guidance via the written word, but also to meet you face to face and introduce you to industry experts who can help you grow your small business.

Last year, we ran more than 15 classes, talks and panel events, which were attended by more than 250 prospective and current small-business owners. Here's a quick run-down of what we offered in 2012 - and what to look forard to in 2013.

Go Global

Our series of Go Global talks helped small-business owners gain the expertise to tap into international markets. Speakers ranged from representatives of PayPal and DHL to the excellent Tony Wheeler, who explained how e founded and built a global publishing business with Lonely Planet.

Design Create Sell

In December, we hosted a fascinating fashion event with Alison Lewy, author of Design Create Sell and founder of Fashion Angel, as well as Maurice Mullen, fashion editor at the Evening Standard, and freelance fashion journalist Emma Freemantle. Our preened panel answered questions from a sold-out crowd at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London and discussed the ins and outs of setting up a successful fashion business.

StartUp Saturday

Our 'start your business in a day' class is enduringly popular and last year we attracted 250 new and prospective  small-business owners. Led by Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones, the one-day StartUp Saturday classes cover everything you need to know to start a new enterprise and give you the opportunity to network with other business and ask questions directly of Emma.
