‘Legal and Operational Foundations for Growth’ workshops launched

18 July 2018

A brand news series of workshops from The Big House launches this September, in conjunction with Stanford Gould. Designed to equip creative and digital businesses with the legal and operational foundations for growth, the programme has been put together in response to feedback from businesses receiving support from The Big House.

The four practical and informative sessions are aimed at new entrepreneurs who have been trading for a year or more and have less than 20 employees. Attendees will learn how to establish solid operational and legal building blocks for growth, by covering the importance of contracts, carrying out a business audit, HR and employment considerations and addressing the question ‘Now you know everything, what next?’.


First of four sessions to build the legal and operational foundations for business growth on September 5th at ThinkinNG

Maybe you are freelancer and wondering whether to take on an employee? Perhaps you have been ticking along nicely, but need a business audit to make sure you have all your business ducks in a row from an operational and legal point of view? The workshops will offer bite size business management basics to help you build your business.

The workshops, taking place on Wednesday evenings in September and October at ThinkinNG in Nottingham will start on 5th September and be delivered by Heather Stanford.
