Ask ex­perts to get free help

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily - By JOHN KRALEVICH john.kralevich@pe­ter­bor­oughto­ *Peter­bor­oughet

ASK The Ex­pert is the first in a se­ries of events aimed at peo­ple con­sid­er­ing start­ing their own busi­nesses.

The busi­ness clin­ics, in Peter­bor­ough, will also be open to those who have re­cently started up in busi­ness, or who have been trad­ing for a while, and are a drop-in for­mat, such that prior book­ing and reg­is­tra­tion is not re­quired.

Or­gan­ised jointly by the Fed­er­a­tion of Small Busi­nesses (FSB) and Re­gus Peter­bor­ough of­fice so­lu­tions, the ex­perts at the event will cover le­gal mat­ters, ac­coun­tancy, fi­nance, IT, health and safety, and sales and mar­ket­ing.

Vis­i­tors to the event will be able to con­sult with any of the ex­perts and be given free ad­vice, or an­swers to spe­cific prob­lems.

Martin Rick­man, who is the re­gional mem­ber­ship man­ager for the FSB in Peter­bor­ough, said: “It is al­ways sad to see new busi­nesses fail be­cause they do not al­ways ap­pre­ci­ate the le­gal re­quire­ments of do­ing busi­ness ef­fec­tively, and they are ill-equipped to pen­e­trate the highly com­pet­i­tive mar­ket­place that ex­ists to­day.

“This free clinic is aimed at giv­ing them a help­ing hand to suc­cess­fully nav­i­gate the many pit­falls of start­ing and run­ning your own busi­ness”.

Ask The Ex­pert is be­ing held at the Re­gus Peter­bor­ough of­fices at Stu­art House, St John’s Street, in cen­tral Peter­bor­ough, on Thurs­day, June 28, be­tween noon and 5pm.
