The ‘InspiringBusiness2018’ initiative offers support to help businesses grow to the next level. The programme is led by a series of inspiring seminars delivered by businesspeople who have ‘been there, done that’ and made those mistakes, and culminating in a competition to find the inspiring business of 2018.
