Business Lifebelt Meet the Professionals – Free Drop-in Business Advice

Date: 23 April 2009 - Time: Session 1: 1.00pm – 4.00pm Session 2: 5.00pm – 8.00pm

Would you like free business advice from Brighton & Hove’s finest business leaders? On 23rd April 2009 a host of Brighton & Hove’s most respected professionals will be available to answer your questions about running a business – and it’s all completely free.


Because running a business through a recession is especially challenging. So Brighton & Hove City Council has created Meet the Professionals as part of a series of events designed to support local businesses.

Who is it for?

Meet the Professionals is for anyone who would like free, supportive business advice. The professionals at the event are volunteering their time, and are all keen to assist everyone that wants help. Whoever you are, and whatever your business, drop in for free unbiased advice from friendly professionals.

What subject can I get advice on?

  • Finance and cashflow
  • Digital media
  • Cost-effective marketing and promotions techniques
  • Growing in a recession
  • Managing staff, resources and operations
  • Business planning
  • Legal matters
  • How to find more help and support
  • Selling the right product to the right audience

If you’re interested in speaking to the professionals and getting valuable business advice for free, please let us know. Email us with the subject areas that interest you:

You don’t need to book tickets – just mark it in your diary and remember to drop in on 23rd April! You might want to bring a notepad and a few business cards as there will be opportunities to meet other attendees.

You will also have the opportunity to meet representatives from Brighton & Hove City Council, Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce, Business Link Sussex and other business support professionals from across the city.
