The popular business support service, Business Northumberland, is inviting local businesses to attend a fully-funded event which will combine all of the programme’s support under one roof. ‘Ignite Your Business’ will be a one-day interactive conference for Northumberland based businesses to work alongside expert trainers and advisers and develop an action plan to facilitate future sustainability and growth. The event will be held at The Alnwick Garden on Tuesday 6th November 2018.

Building on the success of last year’s Business Boom event which hosted over 80 local SMEs, Ignite Your Business will be delivered by the Business Northumberland team; a group of experienced and specialist trainers and business advisers whom are all experts in their respective fields. During the event, the trainers will support small to medium sized businesses through a variety of workshops to create a manageable growth plan that can be put into practice to help them to achieve and exceed their ambitions.

Business Northumberland's expert trainers will help business owners to discover where they are in their business, working on aims, objectives and activities and understanding how best to achieve them. The conference will focus on business growth and finance as well as providing digital and social media advice to deliver an all-encompassing agenda based on the range of support offered through the Business Northumberland programme.

The main objective of the Business Northumberland programme is to help businesses across Northumberland to grow and to prosper. Whether a business is new, established, or looking to grow, the Business Northumberland programme can offer valuable advice and support. The team have already supported over 260 businesses to receive a minimum of 12 hours of support through the programme with a further 100 set to benefit before the end of March 2019.

Councillor Richard Wearmouth, Chairman of Arch, said: “Last year I attended Business Boom, which was also delivered by the Business Northumberland programme, and I have seen first hand the level of support and energy that the team bring to the delivery of an event of this scale. Ignite Your Business is a brilliant opportunity for small and medium sized local businesses who want to work on their future plans alongside industry experts, gain confidence in their ability to grow and meet other local businesses. I would encourage any eligible business to register for what I'm sure will be a very popular and successful event."
