Business people in Chorley are being offered the chance to give their businesses a kick start for free.

Seminars concentrating on networking, social media and online marketing are being run in conjunction with training specialists, Chorley-based Potential Unearthed.

Coun Adrian Lowe, who looks after business issues for Chorley Council, said: “We can only take 35 people on each, so I would advise those interested to book early.”

The networking workshop was held on Thursday, September 20, and offered essential hints and tips to enable business people to network pro-actively.

Next month, October 25, is the social media workshop, which is aimed at businesses which are new to the world of social media.

And on November 21 the online marketing workshop takes place.

To take advantage of any or all of these free workshops, please telephone Potential Unearthed on 0845 615 9455.
