Buckinghamshire is home to one of the highest number of successful small and medium businesses in the country. If you’re thinking of starting your own business, you could get free coaching and training.
‘Be Your Own Boss’ is an initiative currently funded by Buckinghamshire Council’s Community Boards. Each place is free to the participant but the expert training and coaching package is worth £250.
The scheme aims to help new entrepreneurs get their businesses off to a flying start by offering tailored support in the form of:
• Online workshops and seminars
• One-to-one sessions
• Access to networking events and resources
• Advice and guidance from industry experts
• Business support
Councillor Steve Bowles Cabinet Member for Communities at Buckinghamshire Council said: “These expert-led sessions offer an invaluable support package to anyone thinking of starting a business. I’m delighted that so many of our community boards are backing this scheme to help local people build a business at a grassroots level in their area.”
The community boards supporting Be Your Own Boss are:
Beeches, Beaconsfield and Chepping Wye, Buckingham and Villages, Denham, Gerrards Cross and Chalfonts, North West Chilterns, South West Chilterns and High Wycombe.
