With a focus on Social Capital and Social Investment, this year’s conference and funding fair will be an excellent learning opportunity; sharing good practice and the experiences of others across all things funding-related. Plus the opportunity to network and forge productive relationships that contribute to the wider benefit and overall sustainability of the region’s voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
The day combines a keynote address with a number of workshop streams – you can hear directly from funders (including Big Lottery, Ibstock Cory and the Arts Council) about their opportunities, together with hints and tips on how to apply or how about some practical guidance around social media or fundraising from wills and legacies?
And not forgetting the ‘Funder Marketplace’, where you can have a one-to-one conversation with a range of funders, both large and small.
Including refreshments and a buffet lunch, the event costs just £20 per ticket for ‘small groups’ (those with an annual income of less than £15,000) and £30 per ticket for ‘large groups’ (those with an annual income of more than £15,000 – incl. statutory bodies).

What is your 5 & 10-year plan and what is holding you back?
– Do you need to be more productive?
– Become more focused.
– Scale up for growth.
– Create freedom from your business.
– Prepare for retirement and succession planning.
– Improve efficiency and effectiveness.
To achieve these plans, you need to create a single business operating system driven by great business processes. This one system will unify everyone in the company, establish a direction and provide clear guidance for the day to day. Doing this will simplify tasks and free you and your staff from firefighting. The energy and time saved can then be redirected to improving performance, innovation and creating independence. Irrelevant of the sector you are in, the system is as necessary to service, retail or manufacturing.
This FREE business seminar is aimed at business owners, whether it’s just you or a team of 50+.
During the seminar we show you the principals and tools of this system including process control, business modelling and identifying new processes. With some great takeaways to get immediate results for creating your own business processes.
“The seminar has a strong focus on the person running the company and looks to remove their barriers, demonstrating how they will benefit; reducing stress, removing distractions and becoming more productive”.
Mark the founder of Business by Process will demonstrate how a Process Mindset when combined with Process Management can make such a difference to you and your business.
