One of the biggest challenges for small businesses is the fact that they have to master so many skills.
In addition to delivering your product or service, you have to look after all aspects of your business. This can include areas that are not within your field of expertise. The skills that you require can include marketing, advertising, sales, strategic planning, financial management, HR and legal requirements..
As a result, it becomes necessary to gain additional knowledge and skills.
The Uttoxeter Learning Network provides a relaxed and supportive networking environment where business owners can learn new skills. The networking aspect of the group enables you to meet other business owners who are on the same path. This shared aim often leads to mutual support and collaboration.
The Uttoxeter Learning Network is affiliated to the Uttoxeter Business Network but is distinctively different in format and purpose and format.
