small business events, Bordon, Hampshire

If you’re looking for small business events and workshops in the Bordon area in July, the Bordon Hub has a great selection of talks this month. Aimed at small business owners, entrepreneurs, makers and creatives; if you want an alternative to corporate business events this is for you!

The Bordon Hub is based at SiGNAL, a coworking space in Bordon with desk and meeting room hire available too. We’ve created an inspiring and collaborative space for business owners and entrepreneurs, providing an alternative to conventional serviced offices and coworking spaces. If you find these corporate environments a little bit uninspiring or intimidating, SiGNAL is worth checking out. We’re friendly and welcoming, you don’t have to be in a suit, and we have an incredibly supportive community of people who want to help each other’s businesses succeed.

A great way to find out more about us and meet other business owners is to attend one of our events hosted by the Bordon Hub. Once a week we meet to learn more about how to address the challenges we may have, and how to create exciting opportunities for our businesses and ourselves.

Below are July’s main events:

5 business events to attend this month in Bordon

4th July – What’s your next step?

Stuart Morrison is hosting this workshop where we will look at what individual business owners can do to build their brand. The morning will cover, discovering your ideal customer; developing your value proposition; identifying your brand strengths; coming up with ideas for a lead magnet; and detailing your customer journey. While you might have done some of these things already, it’s a useful session to refine your ideas and get feedback and inspiration from the rest of the room.

10th July – 3D printing for makers and foodies

We were very excited to take delivery of our 3D printer last month: it’s available in our Graphite Room for anyone to hire to create products, branded merchandise, prototypes or any other business use you can think of! This session is hosted by Ian Hiscocks, who is an expert in 3D printing, and is aimed at makers and food producers. Ian will help you explore the potential of 3D printing for your business and provide some guidance on how to get started.

11th July – Do I need an accountant for that?

Nicky Cole from Mad About Bookkeeping will be available to answer all your questions about bookkeeping, accounts and finance. If you’re thinking about whether to become a Limited Company or sign up for the VAT flat-rate scheme, or if you have questions about what expenses you can claim for or how to manage mileage and fuel costs for your business, Nicky can advise. Get your questions in early by emailing work@signalbordon.org

18th July – Is sugar stressing you out?

This session might not sound like one for business owners and entrepreneurs but it is. Our physical and mental health can have a very significant impact on our success, and on our business and employees. Here at SiGNAL we think it’s really important that we promote healthy lifestyles and provide you with information to help improve your health and wellbeing. Georgia Boston is a transformational health coach and she will be talking specifically about the impact of sugar on our stress levels and ability to cope, and be providing some advice on how to reduce your consumption.

25th July – Member spotlight

Here’s your chance to be inspired by our Bordon Hub members! Every month we interview three members about their story: exploring their goals and aspirations, what makes them tick, where they find inspiration, their challenges; and their business learnings. This is an opportunity to find out more about our local business community and learn from their experience.
