We bring you DABS Business Builder, a special programme to support would-be entrepreneurs and new businesses still within their first year of trading. It’s delivered by the newest expert on the team, Alan Dodsworth*.
Here’s what you need to know:
What will I do?
Meet Alan at the 1st of 6 weekly online sessions on Tuesday 2nd August. From 4pm-6pm with Q&A and creating live connections afterwards.
For the following 5 weeks, dedicate your Tuesday tea break to joining us online. You’ll listen and learn (or refresh your thoughts) as Alan shares his impressive business building knowledge bank. He knows how to build your business. Network with your peers too.
What’s in it for me?
Each session is packed full of answers to issues that new business owners need RIGHT NOW. Also, you won’t catch Alan anywhere else!
Why 6 weeks?
You can choose to do the complete DABS Business Builder programme (it fits snugly around topics we’ve covered to take you to a new level) or you can pick and choose which ones to attend, using them as one-off knowledge builders on your journey.
The DABS Programme comes to a close in just over 4 months. This is your one chance.
