Local independent retailers to be offered free business mentoring programme

Thursday, 7 July 2016
Dover District Council is working with partners to offer local independent businesses in East Kent the chance to take part in a free business mentoring programme.

The scheme is being run by ibd Business Advice Group, and Dover District independent retailers are invited to attend workshops at Dover Gateway on Castle Street in Dover on 1 and 8 August.

Independent retailers are invited to attend a group workshop before having their own one-to-one tailored business session with mentors from the ibd Group. Mentors provide specific support, including help for businesses to understand how making a small change can have a big impact, which marketing platforms are right for their business, why having a plan and setting goals can help their business grow, and how to discover who their ideal customers are. Retailers will also develop a business plan, set goals and develop a marketing strategy to strengthen their brand.

For more information or to register an interest, email or for more details see the Invest In Dover website.
