Knowledge is power

As business people we are all experts in our chosen field. However, whether you are starting out or have been running your own business for a while, there are many important business areas that you may not be knowledgeable about – marketing, social media, and web management to name a few.

If you want to grow your business you may need to be active in these areas. But how can you improve your knowledge? Well, you can spend days researching the Internet or reading books and still be none the wiser or you can learn from an expert. However, consultants cost money, money you may well not be able to spare at this stage in your business development. This is why Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has developed its new Wise Up 2 workshops.
  • Focused session lasting two-to-three hours on a specific subject.
  • Led by professional trainers who are experts in their field.
  • Small group of up to eight delegates guaranteeing a personalised session
  • Interactive session to aid learning and allows the delegates to exchange ideas.
Recent Wise Up 2 workshops have covered marketing and time management and have all received rave reviews,
Here is some recent feedback

>> A real wakeup call + lots of helpful ideas
>> I learnt alot and the trainer was inspirational
>>
Excellent!
>> Taking time to think outside of the usual routine - I had forgotten the importance
>> Allowed me to re-focus
>> Not long enough - it was so good!!
>> I enjoyed actually writing a blog and getting feedback on it
>> I basically re wrote the rule book and now have a much more focused and realistic way to go forward.

So how much does it cost to get access to this focused training from an expert? If you’re a member of the Chamber (or become a member) a Wise Up 2 workshop costs you just £35. 
This quality of commercial training could cost in execess of £200 for half a day.
