Strategy and Business Planning Workshop - Bath
9am - 5pm

This session is free of charge thanks to the European Regional Development Fund, Bath and North East Somerset Council and other members of the Enterprising West of England Consortium.
In order to qualify for free attendance your business must be located in Bath and North East Somerset. Please contact us if your business is located elsewhere as we may be able to offer alternative help.
This workshop is aimed at owners of established businesses looking to grow - by whatever measure you use.  It could be turnover, staff, number of outlets or any other variable that you want to increase, but the bottom line is the real key.
You want to grow your business, you have some ideas about how you want your business to look in two or three years time but are not sure how to map out the necessary changes.
This workshop will outline the steps you need to take to move closer to your goals and help you understand some of the challenges you could face in transforming your business.
In the few hours available at this workshop you will not be able to complete your business transformation plan, however you will come away armed with some of the key tools to help you..
If you are looking for funding for your business the Bank Manager or equity investor will want to be able to understand what your business is and how they are going to get their money back - if you are not looking for funding, you will want the same answers.
You will hear people say they run their business without a business plan and you don't need one!  Find out why this is not necessarily true and why a business plan doesn't always need to look like one!
By the end of the workshop, you will have:

A clear vision aligned to your long term goals
A clear path of how you are going to get there
A set of short, medium and long term business objectives linked directly to your vision
A single page business plan linked directly to delivering the short term objectives, with clear actions, accountabilities and timescales.
The confidence and motivation to move forward
Identify the vital projects that need to happen over the coming 12 months that will drive the business forward
Identify the key actions that need to be done in order to deliver the above projects
Assign responsibilities, timescales and measurements

Attendees will leave this workshop with the tools and confidence to develop their single page business plan.

Open Mic.
8pm - 9:30pm

What is mental health? 
It’s a big scary label that a lot of people have a lot of opinions on, but really isn’t it just a fancy way of saying “the stuff that goes on inside everyone’s head”? Isn't looking at mental health just trying to work out if the way your mind works is the same as everyone else's?
Featuring original music from local singer/songwriter Matilda Dickinson and musings from writer Hattie Taylor, Open Mic is a soul-baring look into the way our brains function (or fail to). Maybe you’ll find that our brains are a little bit like yours.

Badminton (Bristol)
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
8pm - 9pm


Badminton is booked for 8:00pm on Thursday 16th August (Main Hall court 1) at Kingsdown Sports Centre, Portland Street, BS2 8HL. All are welcome, it's a 60 minute long session and we may head to a nearby pub afterwards.

Please let me know if you are going to attend by Wednesday at the latest. I would prefer that we have at least 4 players, otherwise I may cancel the booking.

Note: When arriving at reception you will need to say that you're attending a badminton session in my name (Matthew Barker). Also, they may require that you to sign up for a (free) Everyone Active membership.

See you there,
Matt ([masked])


Q: How does it work?
A: It's pretty informal, but I would like to know in advance if you are going to attend. (If, by the day before the booking, fewer than 4 people say they are going, I may cancel the booking.) On the day, just turn up in the sports hall with your kit at the booked time and we'll play as many games as we can in the time, rotating through the available players after each one. Usually we play doubles up to 11 points, but this can vary depending on the number of players. Afterwards, we often go to a nearby pub afterwards for a drink and a chat.

Q: How often do you play?
A: Usually every two weeks.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Between £1 and £5 per session, depending on how many people turn up, but usually between £1.50 and £2.50.

Q: What is the standard of play?
A: This is hard to specify, but it's mixed and generally not high, so a novice shouldn't find it too challenging.

Q: How many courts are booked?
A: Only one court is booked, but if there are more than 4 people we play to 11 points (rather than the usual 21) to allow waiting players to get a game more often.

Q: Who can attend?
A: It is open to all (and usually has a combination of men and women). Come along and see if it suits you.

Q: I'm new to the group, how can I find you?
A: Sometimes the expected court number will be specified in advance, otherwise if you don't fancy asking around, you can let me know you'll be coming and I can arrange to meet you.

Q: What parking facilities are there?
A: The sports centre has its own car parks and there is usually on-street parking nearby. There are also bicycle stands outside the entrance.

Q: Can I just turn up for the pub afterwards?
A: Of course, though we don't always go and the choice of pub can vary so it's best to let me know in advance.

Q: Do I need my own racquet?
A: Preferably, though you can hire one from the sports centre (currently for £2 with £5 deposit). For newcomers, I can sometimes bring a spare on request.

Q: What type of shuttles are used?
A: Feather shuttles are provided and included in the session cost.

Q: What rules do you play with?
A: We usually play using 'rally point scoring', i.e. points are scored regardless of who serves, and when the serving side loses a rally, the serve changes immediately to the opponents. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Scoring_system_and_service.
