The aim of the session is to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and skills that enable you to understand yourself and influence your future.

This workshop offers an opportunity for participants to develop new skills and competencies enabling you to pivot into new roles and new opportunities. These skills will help you transition to new employment as well as offering an opportunity for those wanting to start up new business to extend their skills to help support that ambition.

The workshop will enable you to both embed your learning and accelerate the development of your personal profile to be work ready. It is funded through the Scottish Funding Council Upskilling Fund – there is no charge to participants.

This workshop enables you to undertake a skills and behavioural profile as a base for thinking about your entrepreneurial experiences and your wider skills and capabilities.

Additionally the workshop helps you develop your skills in getting business and pitching your ideas to potential clients, stakeholders, and influencers. What can you say about what you offer in an exciting way that has impact!
