Business Planning Seminar – sponsored by Clydesdale bank

Do you need to write a business plan? (If you want to be successful, the answer to this is always ‘yes’ even if you are not borrowing money).

Do you want to understand better business decision-making, or how to go about developing your marketing plan? Then you should come on our business planning workshop, which is held approximately every two months at our offices in St Albans.

Bookkeeping Seminar

Every business needs to keep books – it is a legal requirement and not having up-to-date books can result in a fine. What do you need to do to make sure you are compliant and are confident that you are in control of your accounts?

These business training seminars, usually held at STANTA offices, are provided for STANTA by Alison Cook of AJC Accountancy, a local bookkeeper and accountant, with in-depth experience and understanding of this topic for small business.

“I wanted to thank you for the seminar today, it was hugely helpful and I don’t think anyone should be allowed to start a new business without attending one!!”  Getting Ready for Business (now called Business Planning).  “A quick note to thank you for the course presented by Alison, which I enjoyed and found informative and easy to follow. Thanks again” Richard Osborne after attending the Bookkeeping Course.  “I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that you for today’s bookkeeping workshop. I found the workshop very informative and will feel far more confident completing my tax return in the future. The trainer clearly knew and understood the material, and the informal setup allowed me to ask questions and enabled discussion around the table. A great workshop. Thanks again.” Liz Redway, Independent HR Consultant
