Of­ten dur­ing ses­sions it is pos­si­ble to iden­tify gaps in knowl­edge and train­ing needs. I like to see where I can cre­ate a new train­ing ses­sion and where I need to bring in guest train­ers who are spe­cial­ist in cer­tain ar­eas. We have ses­sions on so­cial en­ter­prise, so­cial me­dia for busi­ness and HMRC soon so these need de­tails con­firmed and the ses­sions pro­mot­ing to clients. In the af­ter­noon I have a one to one ses­sion with Sarah, one of our clients. She has to do a pre­sen­ta­tion on her busi­ness next week so we spend some time work­ing on her ob­jec­tives and do­ing some ac­tion plan­ning. Fri­day I’m start­ing a new group on the Busi­ness Start Up ses­sions to­day. It’s great to see clients pro­gress­ing from the In­tro­duc­tion to En­ter­prise and also to meet new clients. We will be work­ing on how to write a busi­ness plan and the pros and cons of var­i­ous busi­ness struc­tures. All of our train­ing in­cludes a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties for dis­cus­sion, so the women can share in­for­ma­tion and sug­ges­tions and spend time sup­port­ing and en­cour­ag­ing each other which they love. It also helps to build their con­fi­dence and re­as­sure them be­fore we move onto cash flow fore­casts and profit and loss (no­body’s favourite sub­ject). Once the train­ing is fin­ished I take the time to re­view what I have com­ing up next week and catch­ing up with Claire, our ad­min­is­tra­tor, on what pa­per­work needs com­plet­ing and what hand­outs are needed for next week. Then at 5.30pm it’s home time and I look for­ward to the week­end ahead.
