If you live locally and have ever wondered about starting a business, you may have heard of Cotswold Women in Business, a community collaboration Chipping Campden School provides the hub for. Cotswold Women in Business deliver workshops and courses offering inspiration and practical training to women who want to explore self-employment or start a business.
These popular local courses enjoy strong support and attract a wide range of creative women including artists, florists, dog groomers, caterers and designers! Some women attend the workshops with no specific idea simply wanting to find out more about what running a business involves. Others come with a well-developed idea and want the support to finally take the plunge to get up and running. A common thread held by many women is the challenge of how to balance doing work they love and earning money with other responsibilities.
Recent enterprising women completed the 8 week start-up course are pictured here with their certificates. The business launched included: Frankie Jackson, talented hair and make-up artist www.hairandmakeupforweddings.co.uk , Christina Taylor who provides office support to small and medium sized owner-run-business with services such as bookkeeping, HR, and database management www.adminsupportandsolutions.co.uk.
Debs Nursall launched her Child Care Business, “Fun For Tots” www.totsoffun.org and had this to say after the course: “I signed up for the 8 week course hoping to start my own childcare business. I could tell immediately that the course would get me up and running and help me understand the world of business. However, I never imagined I would develop my skills quite so much. My confidence increased weekly and my knowledge base exploded. It was the best start I could imagine. I can’t recommend it highly enough!”
Registration is now open for the next comprehensive business start-up course. Bursaries are available for local women.
