As you may know, running a successful business requires a seemingly endless list of skills. Whether you're thinking of starting a business in the near future, currently running a start-up or are part of an SME, delegates can benefit from this opportunity to learn and improve their key business skills via the range of workshops.
More intimate and detailed than the seminars, the free, interactive, information packed skills workshops run throughout the two days of the show, with each focused on a key area of any successful business. The hour long workshop sessions are a genuine opportunity to learn and develop the skills you need to grow your business, no matter what its size.
The four theatres are: Digital Marketing, Secrets of Selling, Accountancy & Finance, and The British Business Bank Finance Talks in association with ICAEW Business Advice Service.
Digital Marketing Workshops
These days, customers have access to information any time and any place they want or need it. This range of interactive workshops are designed for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of the key digital marketing tools and techniques available today, with a view to improving their overall digital marketing knowledge as well as measuring their effectiveness.
What business owners should remember is that everyone can influence the image of their company via Social Media and you can be sure that your customer feedback will be more trustworthy for others to read than your own. Our experts will guide you through this process - and don't forget, they are all free for you to attend.
Secrets of Selling Workshops
Sales is the lifeblood of any business. We all want and need our businesses to increase sales, but often don’t have any effective plan in place to do this. There are many complicated and occasionally successful sales techniques and programmes that will promise you overnight success but won’t necessarily fit your business or your personality.
The Northern Business Exhibition offers your business the chance to learn skills which will help you sell, improve your sales team's performance, increase your conversion rate, and everything inbetween. We have some of the best experts in the business, who are giving you the chance to learn directly from them, and it's all completely free!
Accountancy & Finance Workshops
Managing your business's finances is nothing short of vital whether you are starting up, or are an expanding SME. As yo may know, it's easy to let finances take up all of your time, and prevent you from focussing on the important task of developing your business.
But paying for financial advice seems a bit ironic, doesn’t it? Thankfully for you, there is finally some free help that’ll bring you out of the financial wilderness - these informative workshops! You can learn how to do your accounts in only 30 minutes a week, keep up to date with auto-enrolement, get tax tips and much more.
