AD:VENTURE has been helping start-ups and young businesses, within the Leeds City Region and that are in the first three years of trading, for since 2016. We have partnered with The Trust to expand our reach and support even more young people.

So, how does it work?

Kicking off with a free information session, The Trust’s and AD:VENTURE’s Enterprise programme will explore how you can be your own boss and will tell you how we can support you. And, if you’re still keen, we’ll also invite you onto a three-day interactive workshop.

You’ll get to meet other like-minded people and will have the chance to tap into a business expert, who covers everything from business planning and marketing, to sales, budgeting and tax.

After this, it’s time to start building your business. We’ll help you to plan and test your ideas, and will give you the opportunity to apply for funding. That way, you’ll be ready to meet our Business Launch Group at the end of the process.

Once you’ve launched your business, we’ll provide you with an experienced business mentor. They will be able to share advice at every step of the way – for up to two years.

If you go on to own a business, you’ll be ready to take advantage of the rest of the support that the Enterprise programme offers. This could mean that you are ready for the coaching stage, or growing stage, and can talk to specialist advisors. You might need access to finance and you’ll be supported through this.

Every day people assess or make judgements on you, both personally and professionally. From how (and where) you present yourself to how you conduct business, from how you communicate to your content on social media, and indeed much more….. You cannot remove your personal “brand” from your professional world, which is especially true in a new, and/or small business like those on the Ad-venture Programme.

So how do you maximise the impact of your personal brand for the advantage of your business brand? This interactive, impactful session will look at how.

Covering;

-How and where is it presented?
-Influencing your personal “brand” content
-Taking your “brand” into the professional world
-Creating inspiring brand “content”
-Standing out in a competitive world
-Creating a Professional impact

If, as they say, “you are what you eat”, the same can be said for a small business owner when it comes to “you ARE your business”. Can you afford not to understand how to maximise both?

This workshop is being delivered by Nick Bramley from Impactus Group.

Mapping & Maximising Your Customer Journey Workshop in Selby

Mapping & Maximising Your Customer Journey – Selby

Tuesday 18 February 2020, 09:30 – 12:30

Today’s customers are faced with an ever-increasing number of choices which means their expectations are high. Marketing alone cannot attract the quantity (or quality) of new customers businesses need, nor will it keep customers engaged, happy and loyal to remain. In this lively, interactive and practical workshop you will learn how to create your own customer journey and explore ideas to maximise their customer experience.

Once you understand WHY the customer (experience) is king, we’ll roll up our sleeves and fill the gaps to turn your Customer Journey dial to 11.

Over six stages, from how you raise awareness to building an army of advocates, we’ll show you how to add value to each stage of your Customer Journey so they move from one stage to the next with ease. A workshop guaranteed to change your perspective on marketing forever, giving you the tools to manage your customers’ experience, grow your business, relationships and profit – for the long term.

Covering:

  • Customer Experience – why, what and how
  • The Customer Journey in six stages
  • Mapping out your own Customer Journey
  • How to identify opportunities and pain-points en route
  • Collating innovative ideas to fill the gaps
  • How to add value to each stage to attract, impress, retain and grow
  • Marketing systems, templates and collateral ideas for each stage
  • Actions to prioritise which stage to address first for easy wins
  • How to get your team tuned into the Customer Experience

If you are tired of start-stop, knee jerk marketing campaigns and are looking to grow your business with a more consistent approach, then this workshop is for you. If you are brimming with ideas with how to give your customers the best experience, you just don’t know where to start, then let’s get to work!

This workshop is being delivered by Marianne Smith from Impactus Group.

LEGAL KICK-START: Getting the Foundations Right

LEGAL KICK-START: GETTING THE FOUNDATIONS RIGHT

Thursday 17th September 2020, 09:30 – 15:00pm

Legal requirements can seem daunting when you make that decision to start-up. This is true for many, but, the fact is to operate legally and to protect your business interests, they can’t be avoided.

The good news is, “the legals” are far easier to manage if you understand your obligations sooner rather than later.

If you take the time to understand the basics at the outset, it’s really not as scary as it seems and you can make informed decisions on what the right approach is for you and your business.

Led by legal specialists from Shulmans LLP (a UK top 200 corporate law firm), this free half-day seminar, where lunch will also be provided, will give you an overview of the legal topics that really matter in your start-up journey.

Further content of the session and an itinerary of the day will be released in due course.
