Content of Workshops:
Increasingly businesses are turning to Social Media (SM) for Business Development and Brand Recognition. This session will allay any fears for volunteers and help to demonstrate the potential for SM to assist clients and volunteers alike in promotion of their businesses and more widely the work of PSYBT. Tools such as LinkedIn and Twitter will be examined in a practical manner.
Are clients entitled to additional financial support when they have started a new business? This session will provide you the aftercare adviser an insight into the Department of Work and Pensions benefits system and to potential financial support for 25-30 year olds who fall into the PSYBT category of disadvantaged.
Sell Sell Sell
Without sales a business is not a business. This session explores some of the simple sales tips that will be of benefit to all of the businesses that we work with every day.
Marketing on a Shoestring
Most of the businesses that we support have a limited budget with which they can market themselves. This workshop looks at some practical, cost-effective ideas for young businesses to use to enhance their presence in the busy business world, and to help them retain existing customers and attract new ones.
Over 150 volunteers have already confirmed their intention to attend the event and any PSYBT volunteers still wishing to reserve a place should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Pauline on 0141 243 5366.
