Online Seminars

Stowmarket Chamber is here to help local businesses.

The lockdown presented us with an opportunity to provide high-quality affordable online seminars on a range of different topics.

The aim is to provide you with practical information and support to help you grow your business and the region prosper.

We’d love to hear from you if there are subjects you’d like to learn more about. Email with your ideas.

The Format

The 45-minute online seminars will be held via Zoom with quality explanation and demonstration of easy to use ideas followed by a chance for participants to ask questions.

Perhaps you are thinking now that you don’t know where to start. Imagine gaining simple practical steps and feeling in control of taking something forward for your business.

Because we want to help you, our costs are low at £3.50 for members and £5 for non-members per session. The chance to gain knowledge in these areas for the price of a cup of coffee!

Getting the best out of networking
Networking is a great way to build relationships, but it is an investment of time and money. How can we improve our return on that investment?
Whether you have never been to a networking meeting and don’t know where to start – or regularly attend a variety of events – join us as we explore how to choose the events that are right for you, how to prepare for them, how to behave during them, and how to follow up.

Safe & happy IT
We rely on our IT but what are the simple ways that we can keep our computers safe? What is the ‘Cloud’ and how should we use it effectively and ensure that we our backups are ok? What is the best way to keep your IT smart and safe? If you're a small business then getting this right could be a lifesaver. Owen will explain it all simply and clearly.

Planning for your Business
Why do I need to plan for the future? Whether you're planning for growth, or just want to continue as you are, the reality is that competitors, customers and society all around you won't be standing still. You need to plan to keep up! 
This seminar will examine why we need a plan, and what you may need to be thinking about when developing one. It doesn't have to be complicated, and we will talk through how to develop a simple plan that can really help you to meet your business goals.
