How would you like to learn the skills to make your business a success?

he Bay Business Centre opened in November 2007, continuing the work that Business Link had previously done providing advice and training to local businesses plus advice to new and start-up businesses.

The centre has provided a range of services including NVQs in business start-up and sales, business advice sessions and one-to-one coaching helping more than 500 people with their dreams of becoming self-employed. Current funding from Department of Works and Pensions supports the running of Passport to Enterprise course aimed at helping people into self-employment. Passport to Enterprise is aimed at Lone Parents and people on Incapacity Benefit (or ESA) who are thinking of returning to work and have considered starting their own business.

David Morris visited The Bay Business Centre to meet students from Lancaster, Morecambe and district who have completed a course specialising in giving free advice and support to lone parents and those on incapacity benefit. Over the 13 weeks there have been workshops and speakers concentrating on finance, marketing and tax. Once students start trading they may also qualify for a Bay Business Centre payment. The award for best presentation went to Michelle Dyer of Hornby who has set up an Internet Marketing company, MumkimoOh! Solutions

  • A Testimonial From Janet Heaton
    Information gained from my course with Bay Business Centre gave me the confidence and determination to do something I have enjoyed all my life. Every week I would meet my new found friends in the group and together we were heading for a new chapter in our lives. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it to be very valuable as part of setting up my business as a sole trading bookkeeper. If it is something you always wanted to do then go for it, I did and I never look back wishing I had not taken the plunge. By the way I was mid 50s with Mobility problems when I did this!

  • I liked Anne's calm and clear way of presenting and giving all the participants her full attention and advice. The advice on marketing was exactly what I needed. Great to meet other people and share ideas. Great that the advice was both general and personal.

  • A big thank you to all of you at the bay Business Centre.
    After having been a freelance web designer for over 10 years, I decided it was time to take the plunge and create a business to enable me create my own business opportunities. I got in contact with the Bay Business Centre who gave me advice on all aspects of the transition, and even allowed me to use one of their fantastic workspaces as an office. Within this modern workspace I had access to meeting room facilities, networking opportunities from organised meetings, possibility to attend targeted training sessions and full wireless internet access, basically everything I needed!

  • A wealth of information for anyone considering starting a business.
    We discovered The Fleetwood Enterprise Centre where we found the support we needed. We initially joined the monthly Enterprise Group, where we met up with other people in the same situation. As a group, we share our ideas, our fears and experience. We have guest speakers, giving us access to professional experts who have a wealth of information for anyone considering starting a business. And it provides an ideal networking opportunity.

  • Amazingly helpful and inspiring.
    I'm writing firstly to say a massive thank you for the two fantastic workshops I've been able to attend that you've booked me on. Both of them were amazingly helpful and inspiring and I think the services you offer to people, free of charge, are invaluable.
