The Enterprise for Success programme, run by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP), offers help and advice to individuals across East Staffordshire who are thinking of starting a new business, and to fledgling businesses that are already up and running.

The flexible, free programme offers:

  • Specialist training courses covering marketing, finance, tax, business planning, e-commerce and PR
  • Referral to support organisations and networks

Councillor Patricia Ackroyd, Deputy Leader for Enterprise and Environment, said: “The Enterprise for Success programme is an excellent package of support aimed at budding entrepreneurs.  This free programme provides one to one support from highly skilled and qualified advisors who can help you in all aspects of setting up in business. From writing business plans to preparing cashflow forecasts, you can take part in workshops that can help to set strong foundations for a thriving business”.
