Skills and Enterprise Fair - Be The Boss!

Friday 19th November 2010


Want to know how to become your own boss? Seeking more information on how to write a business plan and access funding? If so, Bedford Borough Council’s Skills & Enterprise Fair is the event for you! The council is putting on the Fair, which takes place on Friday 19th November, at the Harpur Suite in Bedford, to assist people looking for advice on starting up their own business.

 

There will be a range of organisations represented at the event, 29 in total, all with the main focus to support people in gaining knowledge on the necessary skills to become self-employed.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “There may be people out there who have some fantastic business proposals, but are unsure of the next steps to take in order to make their plans a reality. This event provides an ideal opportunity to thrash out ideas with those who can offer guidance. As a council we are committed to nurturing business talent into life to ensure Bedford Borough reaches its maximum business potential.”

 

The ‘Building Enterprising Communities’ partnership between The Princes Trust, Exemplas and Wenta, will be present on the day along with Business Link and HMRC. A range of representatives will also be able to discuss ways to get into training, apprenticeships, work experience and volunteering opportunities.

 

Sponsors of the event include the Bedford Times & Citizen, Barnfield College, NatWest Bank and Central Bedfordshire College.

 

It is FREE to attend and there is no need to book, just simply turn up between 11am and 2pm on the day!
