‘The term “business plan” can often strike fear into anyone thinking about starting their own business. It’s often considered something only required to keep the bank manager happy or to source finance or investment. However, developing and writing a well thought out plan could be the difference between the success or failure of your idea. Fail to plan, plan to fail! If you are unsure what steps to take this jargon free session will help you develop the confidence, skills and understanding to create a robust business plan that will put your business on a path to success.’
