Ex-Military Self-Employment Discovery Workshop

18th November 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Whether you’ve already started working on your business idea, or are just beginning to consider self-employment, come along to our X-Forces Enterprise business workshop and meet like-minded people.

This workshop covers:

  • The pros and cons of self-employment
  • Understanding what starting a business means for you, your family and your finances
  • Attributes of a successful entrepreneur
  • Discover what support is available, and how to access it
  • Peer-to-peer support & networking opportunities

By the end of this one-day workshop you should be able to make an informed decision as to whether starting a business is right for you.

We will help you understand how to progress from having a business idea to starting a business and how X-Forces Enterprise can support you through this journey.

What our attendees say: “Fantastic! It reinforced my ideas and even led to new ones, plus gave me an understanding of what I need to do next!” Christopher attended a Self-Employment Discovery workshop in London.
