Jim Cregan, the Co-Founder of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee said: “We want to help projects and events that give businesses the motivation to achieve awesome things. The south coast is a great place to do business. It’s inspiring, it’s fresh and if we can provide an extra lift for those in business, we’re happy to do so.”

Business experts will give masterclasses during the day

During the day, those attending can take part in masterclasses from a variety of business experts who will give advice and knowledge in specific areas of business growth. These specific areas include: Leadership, Branding, HR, PR, Chatbots, User Experience, Digital Specialism, Audience Building, Influencer Marketing and Business Marketing.

Nick Gregory the Programme Manager of Dorset Growth Hub said: “Growing a business isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight, but with this free event we aim to inspire businesses on their way to success, whether that is exploring future trends, raising their profile, expanding their team or reaching new audiences. The talks and workshops will give attendees all the tools and advice needed to succeed in their own businesses.”
