This information comes from a press release from Stockton Council. This looks great and I shall be calling in to meet the advisers and hopefully some of the women hoping to set up in business. As a self-employed business woman myself I know how valued these kind of events are as they give an opportunity to ask questions and tackle obstacles to progress. Perhaps I will see you there?
ENTREPRENEURIAL women across the Borough can pick up a host of business tips and advice at a new event next week.
The special ‘Women into Business’ event will take place from 11am to 2pm on Monday, 15 September at Stockton Central Library where budding entrepreneurs can pick up expert tips and advice on starting a business.
The event is part of the wider Enterprising Libraries initiative - a partnership of Stockton, Middlesbrough, Darlington, Hartlepool, and Redcar and Cleveland Councils - as well as Teesside University to inspire people who would like to become self-employed.
The library service is working with a number of organisations to provide a range of tailored information, resources, literature and specialist software.
Staff will be available to set up one-to-one appointments, links to partner organisations and give information about future events and workshops in the library.
Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Regeneration, said: “We are committed to doing everything we can to encourage entrepreneurial spirit and attract new business into the town. This event is an ideal opportunity for anyone who is thinking of starting their own business to get some extra support and professional advice. I’d urge anyone who is considering self-employment to come along on Monday and find out more.”
Entry to the event is free of charge. For more information contact Stockton Central Library on 01642 526521.
