Free self-employment webinars launched to help those facing redundancy
Wenta has launched a series of FREE webinars designed to help anyone facing unemployment and considering becoming self-employed.
Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic has caused uncertainty to many, it has also been a time to reflect on work-life balance and what really matters. We've seen a 140% increase in digital traffic over the past five months, with a large proportion of these enquiries now coming from those at risk of redundancy from their jobs and now thinking of starting their own business.
In response to this demand, and utilising our 37+ years of expertise, we've now launched a series of free webinars which take you through the psychology of running your own business (‘Is starting a business right for me?’), the practical elements of starting a business (‘How to set up your small business’) and how to write a business plan (‘Business planning for your small business’).
These new webinars can be attended as part of our pre-existing free business advice and support services that we offer to new and growing businesses.
Commenting on the launch of these webinars, Alex Shoobert – one of our Wenta's expert business advisors, said:
“Speaking to the hundreds of people that are coming to us each month for advice at the moment, we are seeing unprecedented numbers of those that have been made redundant and considering ‘alternative’ options to getting another 9 – 5 job. Some have used ‘furlough time’ to reflect on their work-life balance needs and others have turned hobbies into business ideas over the lockdown period. As always, we’re here to help people to turn their business ideas into a reality and get started.”
Here at Wenta we provide free of charge and impartial business start-up advice as well as physical, affordable workspace across their business centres in Watford, Potters Bar, Stevenage and Enfield. We're home to a community of 270 SMEs and in 2019, we helped 373 local residents to start their own business.
This new series of business start-up webinars run alongside our Hertfordshire Start-up Programme which provides Hertfordshire residents with 12 hours of free advice and support worth £1400, including access to a start-up grant of up to £3000.
