eOffice Coffee Friday - Strating your own company: My Shoestring Romance

Where: eOffice, 1st Floor Prudential Building 11 - 19 Wine Street, Bristol, BS1 2PH

When: 30 July 2010 10:30am to 12:00pm

Kerry Hale, Partner of Bristol Buddies (A Bristol Social Network) and Director of FUSE (A Singles Events Company) has experienced first hand the ups and downs of developing a business. However, the most intriguing aspect of her dual trade has been that Bristol Buddies & FUSE have a fundamental difference: Bristol Buddies cost thousands to set up and makes nothing and FUSE cost less than £500 to set up and generated profit in its first month of trading!

Kerry will be speaking openly and honestly about the mistakes that she and other business people make during the launch & development of your business. The lessons learnt were sometimes costly, but also invaluable, for this has enabled Kerry to create and run FUSE on a shoestring.

Since the success of FUSE Kerry has also been working with other SME/start up companies to ensure minimal set up costs, a quicker profit and a steady growth.

If you are thinking of starting your own company, you own your own business or work in an SME then you can be sure to gain some tips for local PR, brand awareness, the nitty gritty of what???s needed and what???s not at start up and maybe a laugh or two at some of those classic mistakes!
