At Lloyds Bank we know that starting out in business can be an exciting time, but it can also be quite a daunting time, with so much to think about. In this workshop we will explore some of the key considerations when starting your business, to allow you to focus confidently on setting up for success. From things to think about in those early stages, through to business planning, maximising your digital opportunity, and making use of local resources, we will explore keys for success and common pitfalls to avoid in those early days. As a banking partner to thousands of small businesses in the UK, we will share some of our unique insights to help you put your best foot forward to develop a business that can thrive.
