BE YOUR OWN

WE ARE OFFERING FREE ONE-TO-ONE SESSIONS TO ANYONE WHO DREAMS OF OWNING THEIR OWN BUSINESS BUT ARE NOT SURE WHERE TO START

The Be Your Own campaign, launching on Blue Monday (20th January), will offer half hour mentoring meetings with the Chamber’s start-up business expert, Pete Ball. The sessions will take place at Commerce House, Festival Park, are free to attend with no obligation.

Areas covered in the session can include; business ideas and viability, business planning, cashflow forecasting, market research and tax and finance.

Cris Cohen, owner of private dining and food education provider, Feast With Friends, received start-up business support after leaving his teaching professional in 2016. Chris said “After a long illness I made the decision to start my own business so that I could do something that I loved every day. The support I’ve had from Pete at Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce has had a significant effect on the progress of my business.

“I’m delighted that we’re offering this potentially life-changing support to local people this January. So many people have an idea for a business but don’t get the opportunity or have the confidence to develop it. We’re hoping that our ‘Be Your Own’ campaign will help aspiring business owners realise their potential.”

Sara Williams, CEO of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce

“If you want 2020 to be your year of vision, I highly recommend you book in to see Pete. It’s really helped me see things clearly.”
