‘What Kind Of Entrepreneur Could You Be?’ is a great one day workshop to help you find your enterprise potential.

Ever had a desire to start a business and not done anything about it because...?

Or is it just that you’re considering starting a business because there’s no real alternative?

Ever had an idea at 3am and wondered how it could be turned into a business?

Know a friend that could be an entrepreneur but just needs a push in the right direction?

You don’t need an idea; you don’t need a plan-you just need yourself.

These fun and entertaining sessions take place on 17th & 18th September 2012.

They’re being run by Iain Scott, one of the top specialists in how people learn to be enterprising. Ian has run these sessions across the UK and is now coming to Cherwell.

Event Details :-

• Monday 17th September at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury

• Tuesday 18th September at The John Paul II Centre in Bicester.

The aim is simple: to help you have an enterprise conversation and learn how to translate your dreams into reality (or to save you a lot of grief!).

What Happens On The Day

This is the first of two sessions and the aim is to get you thinking and acting like an entrepreneur.

Over the course of the two days you will do five things

1. You get a chance to talk about your ideas-or how to find one. What worries you and what excites you and learn to make sense of them.

2.You get a chance to test yourself. The biggest myth of starting a business is that you have to do everything yourself. You dont. This will show you how to do what you are great at not what you hate.

3.You get a chance to test your idea. The business people think they are going to start is never the one they end up with so this is a great opportunity to learn how to cost a product or service and understand overheads and contribution. We promise that this is actually fun.

4.You identify the first steps. Like learning to swim starting a business means going in the water. Iain will show you simple things to do that have no risk,so you can find out if you like it and if it is for you.

5. You get a surprise. Most people say the biggest obstacle to starting a business was themselves. Who knows what could happen?

All the information given at the sessions is confidential. You decide what you say or what you do ot. They are fun and entertaining. All you need to bring is yourself and a willingness to have a go!

Places are limited so you need to book early.
