Strategy and Business Planning Workshop - Bath
Eventbrite.co.uk
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.
This workshop includes a mix of teaching and working on your own business assisted by business advisers.

Pencil To Paint: Feb - Mar 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
21st February - 28th March


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Perspective
Tonal value
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  21, 28 February; 7, 14, 21, 28 March 2018
