Local people aiming to take their first or next step in business will be able to gain the advice they need at an event being driven by local entrepreneurs.

Solihull Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with a wide range of Midland business leaders for a Business Lifecycle Forum to be held in Solihull next month.

Expert panellists will be taking part in question and answer sessions on all aspects of owning a business at Cranmore Park, Shirley on Thursday, April 3rd from 8.30am to 1pm.

Mo Page, Managing Director of The Ticket Sellers, and Matthew Pearson, Director and Founding Partner at Webmoco Ltd, will be talking about starting up in business.

The process of growing a business will be covered by Richard Smith, CEO of NC Creative Group and Mark Hobart, Managing Director of Clearview.

Exiting or selling a business will be addressed by Richard Crooks, Business Coach with Do Everything Differently Ltd and Mark Thompson, Managing Director of Aceon Group.

Julie Summerill, Managing Director of TR Fleet and a Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee member will be facilitating with Andy Hurst, Business Coach with Shirlaws Coaching.

Julie said: “The forum will enable attendees to focus on the natural lifecycle that every business goes through from a different perspective in the company of business leaders that are keen to pass on the benefits of their experiences.

“They will be able to learn about the pitfalls and how to avoid them and come away with fresh ideas, solutions and new contacts to support them through their decision making.”

Tickets for the event, which will include a networking session and a light lunch, are available priced at £25 including VAT for Chamber members and £35 including VAT for non-members by clicking on the event page at
