We were delighted with the turnout for our Protect your Business event yesterday at the Town Hall in Hungerford. The event ran smoothly and was packed with useful information on how to protect your business and staff. The afternoon kicked off with a bit of networking between nibbles and drinks, followed by our keynote speaker who was introduced by Karen of Marlborough Law.
Emma Milne White the owner of the Hungerford Bookshop, who told us her business story right from the start to the present day. It was brilliant to hear from someone who is so passionate about what she does and who is always thinking of new ideas to promote their business. The subscription model sounds like an excellent idea, you get interviewed by the staff who then pick books and send them to you each month based on your feedback.
This was followed by a brief explanation from each of the panel of experts on their area of interest. Steve from Claritas told explained about the importance of keeping your tax up to date and what can happen if an investigation is undertaken by the government. Tayler from Harridge Financial Services told us about insurance available in case the worst should happen. Doug Pudney gave a cracking talk about how coaching can get your business growing rapidly if you concentrate on 6 things in particular. Our very own Alex Atkins demonstrated why you should get the boring/lawyers involved from the start to ensure you are secure in the future.
The event was attended by a mix of local business people, the mayor, and a local councilor. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended and we look forward to running more events like this in the future.
