The Challenge:

Jack is in the middle of having a shower when all of a sudden he has a light bulb moment. He thinks he’s come up with the next great big fantabulous idea that is going to make him a millionaire. However there’s a problem. Jack does not know where to begin because he has no prior business knowledge or experience of owning or running a business. Although Jack might have some experience of working in the corporate world, he needs help understanding the complex world of Startup businesses in a simple and concise way.

Interactive Entrepreneur Training Workshops:

I believe in simplifying complex things

I believe that the journey of transforming your idea into a viable business should be a simple, empowering and great learning experience. I run interactive workshops that teach you the fundamentals of setting up and running your own business. I simplify and empower budding entrepreneurs to kick-start their journey in an efficient way.

I train entrepreneurs and anyone that is thinking about starting their own business what we call enterprise skill sets. I provide participants with crucial information and practical skill sets that empower anyone to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. This means thinking & acting like an entrepreneur. In doing this my aim is to provide participants with the information, resources and hopefully the confidence that they need to translate their idea(s) into a viable and successful business(s).

At the end of the workshops, participants should have the information and hopefully the confidence to start off their entrepreneurial journey. My workshops cover topics such as, How to develop a personal brand, elevator pitching, Legal aspects like the formats and basics of registering a business, protecting your ideas via intellectual property, where to find funding and business support + coaching. How to analyse the viability of your business idea without writing a 20 page business plan and many more.

So Jack can jump straight out of the shower, book himself onto one of our workshops to help him get started on his entrepreneurial journey.
