Working with Boost Business Lancashire and the Centre for SME Development, Propeller is hosting a round table event. Come along to with a quandary and work together to crack each other’s conundrums.
We’ll start with an introduction to what each of the services do for businesses in our local community and provide guidance during the round tables.
Take advantage of this diverse range of businesses to gain perspective and crowd-source solutions to whatever is currently your top issue to overcome.
Following the round table, we will open the floor to hear what each person is facing and indicate what local services can provide you with support on the issue.
If you’re eager to meet others and have enough humility to ask for help, then we want to see you there!
Come along to with a quandary and work together to crack each other’s business conundrums.
