We operate these events with a self-employment criteria in place. Because of this we ask you to register your interest for the event.
This workshop is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Start Smart programme.

This workshop is only open to those who are self-employed, running a business or considering these options. If you would like continued support for yourself or your business you will need to complete a quick registration form on the day where we collect some personal information in order to monitor the impact of the support we provide.

Please do not attend if you have no interest in self-employment
