Welcome to Growing Your Own Business
DEVELOPING A BUSINESS is both challenging and time-consuming for even the most talented entrepreneurs. Structure and clear management are required to drive companies from inception to success. To become sustainable and profitable, it is critical to keep abreast of opportunities and threats in the market and maintain competitive advantage by updating your business model in order to survive and grow. The Growing Your Own Business Exhibition & Conference is the perfect place to learn the fundamentals of business growth, marketing, sales, planning, finance, networking, and so on.
The event runs alongside the National Franchise Exhibition, profiling companies that offer advice and services to small business decision-makers looking to increase profits, raise turnover and strengthen their business infrastructure.
The way to succeed
EVERY BUSINESSMAN can always learn from the successes of others. Indeed, over the 14 years that I have been building Cobra Beer I have learnt a lot from how others have developed their businesses.
Now, as Chairman of the Government's National Employment Panel's Small and Medium Sized Enterprise Board, and Vice Chairman of the Asian Business Association of the London Chamber of Commerce, I continually see and hear the difficulties that growing businesses face, the opportunities open to them and how successful business people make the most of them.
At 10:15 on Friday 8 October at the Growing Your Own Business Exhibition & Conference, I shall be making the opening keynote presentation--'Growing your business from survival to strength'--in which I would be would be delighted to share with you my thoughts and suggestions on how to address these problems and capitalise on the opportunities available.
Attending this event is an important first step forward for your business. It shows that you are prepared to invest time and effort into looking for new ideas.
And you will find plenty here to help. Growing Your Own Business offers invaluable advice and services designed to help you increase your profits, raise your turnover and strengthen your business infrastructure. Professional organisations including government agencies, marketing services, and small business advisers will help you with all aspects of development. An impressive array of experts presenting the seminars will share their knowledge on key issues facing you as an entrepreneur and business owner. In addition, twice a day, the Business Improvement Networking Cafe, sponsored by Advanced Training, will enable you to form new contacts, share experiences and gather practical ideas from one another.
This is a superb opportunity and I wish you an enjoyable and successful day. Now, as always for entrepreneurs, the rest is up to you!
