A business support organisation is bringing back a popular range of skills workshops for start-ups in Suffolk and Norfolk.

The Start Right programme – covering business planning, marketing and bookkeeping – has been so successful in 2017, the agency has announced it will continue in 2018.

Jo Garden, Menta’s senior business adviser, said: “The Start Right programme has been completed by over 255 delegates. At least 130 of them have taken the plunge into self-employment. We see people from all age groups and backgrounds which allows great interaction between delegates.”

The workshops are held at venues in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Beccles and Diss.

Menta added the Start Right workshops to its suite of business services which include networking events, advice and conferences. They have accomplished this through funding provided by the European Regional Development Fund.

The long-term aim is to produce more employment opportunities and prosperity to the Eastern Region.

For more details, dates and locations for the Start Right workshops, go to the training page of Menta’s website www.menta.org.uk or call Menta on 01284 760206.
