Business breakfasts to boost local firms
In these times of economic restraint, local firms are under more pressure than ever to chase markets and keep the cashflow ticking over. East Ayrshire Council’s Economic Development Team understand the real difficulties facing companies and have launched “Spring Business Festival” with a series of business breakfast seminars to be held in the leafy surroundings of the Visitor Centre at Dean Castle Country Park.
Starting at 8.30am – 10.30am on Thursday 1 March, and being held on subsequent Thursdays until 22 March the seminars are aimed at small businesses, with practical advice and discussions aimed at helping planned growth.
The first seminar “Practical Marketing” presented by Banana Leaf Consultancy, focuses on the key elements of marketing and how to build a plan for growth. This is followed by sessions on “Market Your Business on a Shoestring”, “How to Sell Well” and “Release Value from your Hidden Assets”.
Councillor Jim Buchanan, spokesperson for Delivering Community Regeneration, East Ayrshire Council said: “We’re delighted to be hosting these seminars. As part of our ongoing programme of Economic Development we’re engaging with local businesses to offer support in many areas, including employability, training and grant funding for expansion. These meetings are another strand to our support for business in East Ayrshire. By working in partnership with local companies we’re increasing networking opportunities for all and fostering a good business environment for the future.”
