Business Gateway has launched a series of specialist workshops designed to help businesses in the Outer Hebrides start, grow and develop – even in these challenging economic times.
Accessing the correct advice is key to the success of any business and the free workshop programme has been devised to complement Business Gateway’s comprehensive support network, ensuring businesses across the Outer Hebrides get the help they need.
Utilising feedback received from individuals and businesses, the summer workshop programme will focus on topics which are important to new and growing businesses.
