Learn new skills or brush up on existing ones for FREE!
If you are finding you have time on your hands right now, this could be put to use by developing and/or fine tuning some of your business skills, which could reap benefits in terms of getting a business up and running or helping a business to adapt to what has become an even more challenging marketplace. An internet search may well bring up a range of on-line courses, but if you follow this ‘Skills Toolkit’ link you will find a range of learning opportunities at all sorts of different levels.
Obviously we are currently facing the most challenging times, both personally and professionally. The government seems to be doing all it can to minimise the financial burden that the Coronavirus restrictions are placing on us all though at this time it does look like many self-employed people are falling through the gaps. Things may change as new legislation is introduced but once this is over there is going to be a massive economic hangover that we will all face and we want to assure our community that we at Bradford Trident will do all we can to support local business people as they pick themselves up and get back on their feet and adapt to the new norm, whatever that may be.
To get up to date information about the support available to businesses here in Bradford follow this Coronavirus Support for Business link and sign up for the updates – you can unsubscribe from this at any time.
As much as possible we will aim to maintain our Enterprise Support service remotely, as we are currently not in our usual home at The Park Lane Centre. Please feel welcome to e-mail me, Jonathan: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do what I can to help, though the best advice I can give right now is to follow government guidelines, do what you can (without putting yourself at risk) to help those less fortunate than yourselves, never miss an opportunity to show your appreciation of the fantastic people in our frontline services, be this the NHS worker or the delivery driver dropping your essential supplies at home, and call those likely to be lonely, don’t text.
Here is the GOV.UK link relating to business that you may find helpful, there will be a range of other information available if you do a ‘Google Search’ but this is the one that carries the most up to date and reliable information.
When we get through to the other side of this please be assured you will be very welcome to book an appointment to call in to discuss how to get things going again, gain help with business planning/refocussing, talk through ways that technology might help drive further efficiencies or plan and launch a totally new business, etc.
We will still be here to support our enterprising community, and we hope we’re chatting safely face to face again soon.
