THURSDAY 17 NOVEMBER – START-UP FAIR, SOCIAL MEDIA & IP WORKSHOP & INSIGHTS
What a jam packed event we have planned for Global Entrepreneurship week! After you have got some rest from social storm we are kickstarting it all again with the fair and following insights.
The Enterprise Start-Up Fair is held in association with the Global Entrepreneurship Week, the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. This year we are inviting many organisations, who focus on entrepreneurship and support start-ups, to introduce their services and provide you with information to help develop an entrepreneurial mind-set or support you in starting your own business. We have the likes of IQ in IT, Pivomo, Enactus and many more.
We also have workshops run by guest speakers such as Delia Porter, Nicolle Anderson, Nick Phillips and Paul Andrews.
Delia and Nicolle will be sharing their experiences of using social media to grow their clients’ businesses as well as their own. Done well, social media can significantly help businesses to succeed. Come along to find out about the challenges, the pitfalls to avoid, and top tips for success.
Nick and Paul will be discussing a brief introduction to the main IP rights with some worked examples. With considerable experience in advising clients on data protection, e-commerce, domain names and internet related issues, Nick and Paul’s workshop is not one to miss to protect your trade secrets.
You will have the opportunity to:
- Meet organisations that provide support for start-up businesses;
- Network with like-minded people and share ideas;
- Attend the workshop on how to use social media successfully;
- And listen to one of our illustrious alumni talking about how to be successful in business!

So as you can see our events are changing as fast as the colours of the leaves but we still have our workshops on Wednesdays at 4pm and you can find more about them here.
