Coronavirus update

A number of our courses are postponed and our workspaces are mainly closed for visitors, but we will be bringing you a host of workshops and opportunities online! Please read the full information on Tree Shepherd's response and what's on here


We are launching a series of webinars to help businesses through coronavirus. We want to hear from you about the major issues you are facing so please email us on or call us on  07803 097532 with your questions.

Tuesday 24 March at 3pm Webinar / Online Meeting: Helping your business survive coronavirus: action planning, Colin Crooks, CEO

Colin will talk through some tips and advice to keep your business afloat during the current crisis and answer your questions. He has been a businessman for a good few decades now (he won't mind us saying that!) and has weathered a number of storms, so will do his best to give some practical advice on next steps. He can't promise to have all the answers but hopefully there'll be something in there to take away.
We are hoping to offer sessions on benefits, marketing and cashflow in the coming days and weeks so watch this space, we will update this thread as more webinars and courses come available
