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.

The capability for epistemic contribution
2pm - 3:30pm

The paper is based on 64 life history interviews with second-year university students in five South African universities carried out in the first year of a ESRC-DFiD & NRF[1] funded four-year project (Miratho, 2016-2020). The project’s interest is higher education access, participation and outcomes for rural and (fewer) township youth. The conceptual framework is provided by the capabilities approach developed by Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum, which emphasises the extent to which people have opportunities and the freedom (known as capabilities) to be and do what they value (known as functionings). In this conceptualisation, poverty is capability reducing and a university education (potentially) capability expanding.
 Here the focus is the experience of participation in university learning. Two capabilities have emerged as central. The first is the capability for sufficient and secure financial resources, which most of the 64 students interviewed did not have. The second, which this paper concentrates on, is the capability for epistemic contribution to society. The latter is defined by the philosopher Miranda Fricker as having the freedom and the capacity to choose to contribute as knower, enquirer and teller in society. We propose that equality of access to (inter) disciplinary knowledge or ‘epistemological access’ is a condition for developing this capability. People have a right to contribute on an equal basis to the shared stock of society’s meanings, ideas, arguments, therefore, coming to understand specific bodies of knowledge at university has a special role in expanding this capability. The empirical question which this paper addresses is what enables or hinders students to engage with university bodies of knowledge and therefore to gain the freedom to choose to make epistemic contributions to society.

Bath Makers - First Official Meetup!!!
Bath Makers Meetup
6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hello beautiful maker people!!

Join us for our first ever makers meetup at the Guild co-working space in central Bath!!

So, what do we have planned?

The 3D print area:

We’ll have a couple of 3D printers running. If you are a 3D modeller and have something you desperately want printing please let me in advance as there’s a chance we could print your design on the night (depending on how big the part is). If no-one has anything in particular they want printing I’ll more than likely print some quadcopter parts or perhaps a little toy in case we get any younger folk coming along.

I’ll also bring along a 3D print pen which everyone is welcome to have a play on.

The laser cutter area:

We’ll have a glowforge laser cutter running in one of the rooms. We’ll be cutting/engraving some bits and bobs to demo what the cutter can do. We also thought it’d be cool if people go home with a little trinket so we’ll be offering everyone the chance (time dependant) to make their own customised keyring should they want to.

The robot area:

We’ll bring along an ozobot. If you haven’t heard of them before they are these awesome little line following robots which can be programmed by changing the colours of the line they travel over. It’s a great little introduction to programming for kids and to be honest it’s also quite fun as an adult :)

I’ll also bring along an Arduino starter kit so if someone wants to have a play and create a simple project they’d be able to do so.

The show and tell area:

If you have anything you’ve been working on recently please bring it along and show it off. Make sure you put a brief writeup next to your creation to let others know how you made it and the thinking behind it.

There might be a few more toys and tools too depending on who brings what, but this is a brief overview of the evening.

Please come along and show your support and prove that this is something Bath actually wants and needs, get involved, play with the toys, socialise and most of all have some fun!!

Lastly, I want to say a huge thank you to Tom for letting us use the Guild to host our meetup. The Guild will be selling beers and such things, so if you want a way to show support and enjoy a glass of something pleasant, you have the perfect excuse!
