Event information / agenda

A Big House Event supported by Creative Quarter & delivered by Steve Hobbs, Asking Better Questions Ltd


Becoming your own boss brings you the potential for creation a successful business, however you define that success. It also puts responsibility for maintaining the financial health of the business in your hands. That is a double-edged sword.

This workshop will consider how you can finance the start-up and growth of your business. Some businesses require virtually nothing to get off the ground. Others need a significant investment.

When growing, it can be done organically (you’re generating the cash you need to grow the business from within the business itself), or by raising additional finance to pay for the growth. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.

This workshop will talk a walk through many of the options and help you understand how they might help and what that means for you in the short, medium and long-term.

Come and learn about

• The options for financing your business

• The implications of each choice for you personally and the business

• The advantages and disadvantages of each option

• How to go about making a choice

• Where you can get more help and / or to apply


Those who are choosing to create their own job whether that be self-employment, contracting, starting a business, working a side-line alongside part-time work.


This workshop will be facilitated by Steve Hobbs from Ask Better Questions Ltd. Steve is an experienced business owner and employer, leader and manager. The tools of his trade are questions. The aim is to ask better questions…Ones that promote thought, challenge assumptions, clarify ideas, enable decision making, inspire action.

Steve says that "There has been time to observe those around me lead, manage, plan and execute. What have I learned? Leaders who focus on the ‘Why', then the ‘How' and finally the ‘What' create teams and organisations that get things done."
