Business Explorer Workshop

The 1.5 hour Business Explorer workshop takes young people through a series of discussions to identify if self-employment is an option for them.

This small group format for up to 15 young people works well as a careers expo event or for any young people who may not fit traditional education, employment and training pathways.

Business Discovery Workshop

Starting a business in 2022 is easier than starting a business even three years ago but this can mean an overwhelming number of choices about the type of business to start - fashion, health, education, technology; the method for sales - ecommerce; bricks and mortar and then, which product or service to sell?

This 3 hour Business Discovery workshop is designed to follow on from the Business Explorer workshop or can be held as a stand alone event.
