Webinars on securing funding and managing your finances

24 August 2021

Whatever happens next this year, one thing is certain – you’re going to need money

The subject that most of our clients want to talk to us about is, not surprisingly, finance; how to get funding and how to manage it properly.  Lots of other business skills are needed to run a business of course, but, without money, you can’t really get anywhere.

That’s why our latest event calendar includes lots of useful webinars on this subject.  They’ll be here before you know it, so book now by clicking the links below.

How to write successful grant applications – how to find them and how to win them. 10/9/21 10.00-11.30am.  Rachel Hayward returns to deliver this practical session which was hugely oversubscribed last time.  She’ll tell you how to avoid the mistakes that people often make and you’ll look at available grants in Leicestershire you can apply for.
