Barclays, with backing from the ACCA and Business Link, the UK free business advice and support service, is offering 26 free business seminars around the country.
The “Let’s Talk Preparing for Growth” is a series of 9 new seminars from Barclays focusing on business growth. In addition, Barclays is offering 17 “Let’s Talk Bright Marketing and More Profit” seminars during the second half of the year.
The “Let’s Talk” seminars are delivered by business experts who have supported companies in implementing strategies and processes focused on customers and profitability.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Business Secretary Lord Mandelson was reported as saying: “This is an important initiative by Barclays which I hope helps small businesses get the support they need to grow.
“Small firms depend on bank lending to fulfil their potential and any move like this by lenders to help businesses deal with new challenges is encouraging.
“There is plenty of free advice available for small firms to help them succeed, including from Business Link, and it is important that they take advantage of the full range of support on offer”.
