Join the Club!
From September there is an exciting new opportunity for anyone starting a business or developing their existing business in Strathearn… The Business Club. Can Do Crieff is partnering with Strathearn Strategic Consulting to offer a 6 month programme with a host of benefits to help you turn your business idea into a reality or to support you as you grow and develop your business. The programme will be fully funded and so all you need to invest is your time, energy and commitment. Watch our videos for more info.
If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to take up, register your interest and fill in this short form by Monday 30 August. The programme will start on Monday 6 September. If you have any questions or would like to find out a bit more, Trystan can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help you decide if this is an opportunity you’d like to take up, Trystan Powell (Director of Strathearn Strategic Consulting) answers some of the key questions you might have:
What is the Business Club?
The Business Club is an opportunity to access business support and advice and join the Can Do Crieff community of entrepreneurial people who are starting a new business, self-employed business owners and remote workers. As a member of the Business Club you will be supported in your journey either starting a business or developing your existing business. You will be provided with desk space at the Can Do co-working space in Crieff for the duration of the 6 month programme, have professional photos / headshots taken, develop a co-created action plan to support your development and have regular reviews and check-ins with a business consultant.
Who is the Business Club for?
The opportunity is open to anyone in the Strathearn area who has an existing business they are looking to develop or those who may have an idea for a new business but don’t know where to start. It is open to any industry or type of business. Participants that get the most out of the programme will be the ones who are willing to commit the time to work with Strathearn Strategic Consulting and utilise the benefits of being a member of Can Do Crieff
What is your role in the Business Club?
I will be the main point of contact for the 6 month programme providing the tailored support to each business and participant. I will be on hand every step of the way to help participants navigate through the programme, offer practical advice, discuss ideas, develop plans or just act as a sounding board. Running a small business myself I know the challenges that come with it and I am looking forward to working closely with a diverse set of business owners to provide the necessary support to help their business grow.
Why is now a good time to join the Business Club?
In my experience, sometimes we wait for the perfect opportunity to do something, and it never comes. If anything, the last 18 months has shown the only constant is change and it has provided an opportunity for everyone to reflect on what they want to do with their lives. In every crisis there is opportunity and now is a perfect time to start a business or refresh an existing one, with a focus on supporting local businesses and a desire for communities to rebuild together after such a difficult period. There is no denying there will be bumps in the road but this programme is designed to create a support network around members to create an environment where we can tackle the challenges ahead together and hopefully celebrate each other’s successes along the way too!
