Tree Shepherd is running a series of business clinics, training courses and an enterprise and jobs event for local Loughborough Junction residents ahead of the development of LJ Works. If you are finding it difficult to get a job, have ever thought about starting your own business or are looking for advice on moving to new premises, please get in touch, or come to one of the events.

On the Start Your Own Enterprise course participants will first be helped to develop their ideas, before designing a business plan, learning about cash flow, and being taught how to make their first sale.

Tutor and CEO of Tree Shepherd Colin Crooks says, ‘Please come along and join in. Everyone is in the same boat, so don’t worry if your business is just an idea at the moment. You’ll learn everything you need to put a basic business plan in place including sales and marketing, finance, presentation skills, people management, networking and all the nuts and bolts of registering a business. On graduating, you’ll belong to a vibrant Enterprise Network and benefit from free events, business clinics, regular coaching sessions, new trade and collaborative working opportunities.’
