We are at One Place, 1 High Street, Burnham-on-Crouch CM0 8AG and are able to provide:

Business Advice:

 A One-to-One business advisory service operating by appointment on Tuesdays to both start-up and growing businesses. This service is designed to offer help and encouragement to anyone who wants to start a business and will review your business idea and give you an honest assessment of your likelihood of success. We will take you through the processes needed to establish a business and give advice on all aspects of researching, establishing and running your own business whether you wish to be a sole trader, a partnership or co-operative, a community interest company or a private limited company.

If you are an established business and need to grow your business or change due to a change in the market, we will run a business health check with you to identify areas for improvement or change and provide a list of actions you should take to achieve change.

 Business Training:

 This takes two forms on alternating months.

 Introduction To Business – which are exploration workshops for new businesses. These are half-day workshops where a group of individuals who are thinking about starting their own businesses are provided with an insight into what it is really like to run your own business and be your own boss!

 Step Into Business - this is our full three day course running over three successive weeks and focuses on the core skills and knowledge needed to start your own business. The course guides you through the business planning process and covers all the key elements you will need to master to run a successful business. If there is sufficient demand we may run this course as a six week evening course.
