Learn how to start your own business with Cheshire East

By on January 9, 2011

A lively presentation is to be held as part of a Business Hub event aimed at start-up businesses in Cheshire East at Macclesfield Town Hall on Wednesday, January 12.

The Council’s Economic Recovery Task Group is working hard to support its local business community and this event is the latest in a line of workshops to help boost trade in the area.

Blue Orchid, which offers free and impartial advice to anyone considering self employment, will be making the presentation which is specifically aimed at businesses in the early stages of trading or those looking to start a new business.

Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said: “The Business Hub is an opportunity to get some independent expert advice about improving or starting a business.

“We are delighted to have Blue Orchid on board to assist us in helping local businesses through the economic recovery. Maintaining a successful local economy and supporting businesses is what the Business Hub is all about and this event will be extremely valuable.”

Blue Orchid has been established as a key provider of business support for more than seven years and works closely with the North West Development Agency.

Its spokesman Derek Williams said: “Each client is given a one-to-one assessment and action plan designed to meet their own particular needs, with the creation of business plans, cash flow forecasts and detailed target marketing analysis prior to trading.”

Blue Orchid is currently the designated provider for all pre-start business support across the North West, working with Job Centre Plus and Business Link to provide all new business advice and workshops for 2011.

The Business Hub event takes place between 10am and noon. For more information, Cheshire East business engagement co-ordinator Jacqueline Wilson is available on 01270 685911 and jacqueline.wilson@cheshireeast.gov.uk
