Free Business Seminar 2014 Announced

The Shepherd Partnership Business Seminar 2011

We are delighted to announce that for the fourth consecutive year we will be hosting our acclaimed local Business Seminar & Budget Response. Clients and non-clients are very welcome to attend, for free.

The morning-only event will this year include presentations from Growth Accelerator, a unique service led by some of the country’s most successful business growth specialists, and the Business Team from Barclays Bank in Skipton. In addition, the day will conclude with a digest from the previous week’s Budget 2014 announcements. Shepherd Partnership Director, Adam Dutton, will distil the key elements relevant to local small businesses, and relay them in an easy-to-understand way.

In addition to the formal presentations there will be networking opportunities and complimentary breakfast rolls, tea & coffee will be served.
