Free Business Start workshops designed to help firms with financial planning

It’s the autumn term and the boys are back in school.

I can scarcely believe it. Firstly that I’m old enough to have a son in year five and secondly that its only 14 weeks until Christmas.

There I said it.

So Oliver is now in his second to last year at primary school and Samuel has just started in year three.

As you would expect, going back to school has been completely plain sailing.

We have only had a handful of grazed knees, lost books and the odd hole in each of the newly purchased uniforms.

And don’t mention pack lunches.

We try to think of different things to put in, but it’s quite challenging seeing as one doesn’t like salt and vinegar crisps and the other only eats salt and vinegar crisps. There’s also the matter of the water bottle. It has to be a certain shape, size and it must not under any circumstances include a straw.

Oh and apparently some yoghurts are not cool. I don’t even know if using the word cool is cool anymore.

That aside, the boys like school and they already talk about the subjects they would like to pursue further.

Two of my colleagues are also going back to the classroom in a sense to deliver our new free Business Smart workshop, which is taking place on October 1, at Hethel Engineering Centre, near Norwich.

It has been designed to encouraging ambitious firms to ask the right questions about the financial future of their business.

The workshop will focus on key topics to help investigate where a business is headed – finding the right tools and resources, finance and risk management methods, as well as how to navigate the reporting landscape.

Participants will start with a goal and think about what they would need to put in place to make it a reality.

My goal is to discover the best type of water bottle to buy. What has my life become?
