Knowledge is power

As business people we are all experts in our chosen field. However, whether you are starting out or have been running your own business for a while, there are many important business areas that you may not be knowledgeable about – marketing, social media, and web management to name a few.

If you want to grow your business you may need to be active in these areas. But how can you improve your knowledge? Well, you can spend days researching the Internet or reading books and still be none the wiser or you can learn from an expert. However, consultants cost money, money you may well not be able to spare at this stage in your business development. This is why Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has developed its new Wise Up 2 workshops.
  • Focused session lasting two-to-three hours on a specific subject.
  • Led by professional trainers who are experts in their field.
  • Small group of up to eight delegates guaranteeing a personalised session
  • Interactive session to aid learning and allows the delegates to exchange ideas.
Recent Wise Up 2 workshops have covered marketing and time management and have all received rave reviews,
Here is some recent feedback

>> A real wakeup call + lots of helpful ideas
>> I learnt alot and the trainer was inspirational
>> Taking time to think outside of the usual routine - I had forgotten the importance
>> Allowed me to re-focus
>> Not long enough - it was so good!!
>> I enjoyed actually writing a blog and getting feedback on it
>> I basically re wrote the rule book and now have a much more focused and realistic way to go forward.

So how much does it cost to get access to this focused training from an expert? If you’re a member of the Chamber (or become a member) a Wise Up 2 workshop costs you just £35. 
This quality of commercial training could cost in execess of £200 for half a day.

    What is Peer Mentoring? The Peer Mentoring Groups consist of 8-12 business owners from different business areas who are willing to learn from and support each other by sharing their expertise and varied skill sets in a confidential environment. All the programmes have at their core the concept of Action Learning – this is ‘learning by doing’, focusing on group members’ real business challenges and identifying practical actions they can take to solve them. An experienced facilitator guides the group and holds members accountable.

    What are the benefits?
    •    Thinking time to work on (rather than in) the business
    •    The opportunity to explore challenges in a confidential environment
    •    A diverse pool of wisdom and expertise to draw on
    •    A unique blend of challenge and support from peers
    •    Ideas for new products and services
    •    Practical solutions to specific problems
    •    Potential cost savings
    •    Developing management skills
    •    Building relationships, trust and mutual understanding
    •    Creating an environment of continuous learning

    How will Peer Mentoring help me?
    This programme is for both start up and established businesses that are looking to grow and develop. The content of each meeting is determined exclusively by members themselves including the provision of 6 bespoke workshops as identified and requested by the group. Each member has two scheduled time-slots for introducing their business to the group and reviewing their progress as well as monthly opportunities to present a business challenge for Action Learning sessions. Groups meet for 3 hours once a month over the course of a year.

    Another Chamber initiative to support you and your business! Since 2012, Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has been offering highly successful peer-to-peer mentoring group programmes to over 60 members and is planning it’s next group.
