UPCOMING ONLINE SESSIONS

 

WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU AS MUCH AS WE CAN

While most of us is going through such unprecedented and uncertain times, we are working behind the scenes to give you as much as information, knowledge and support as we can.

That’s why we have created the following session schedule, connecting you to fellow creative business founders, business advisors, consultants and experts.

From my personal experience in navigating a small family business through recession and downturn, I have decided to focus our sessions around:

1/ mindset

2/ strategic thinking and agility

3/ growth now and in future

NETWORKING EVENTS

ESTILA EVENTS  have been created with one mission – to bring and connect local creative business owners under one roof and encourage collaborations.

We believe that there are many opportunities on our doorstep, if we know the people we can explore them with and collaborate on together.

GOING BACK TO LOCAL

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. While most businesses try to compete on global level, we believe that going back to local will benefit everyone, the customer and the business. By working together we can improve our high street and local economies significantly.

THE AIM

It is a well-known fact that networking is one of the most valuable uses of time in business in terms of return. Networking should be part of any marketing strategy, if you want your business to succeed.

Our events are based around collaborations and knowledge. By providing an opportunity to introduce small business owners to each other and to encourage sharing their business stories, we hope to create a business environment where they feel supported at any stage of their business journey.

THE STRUCTURE

The event is divided into two parts. The first part is educational (a panel mini-session on a specific business topic featuring local influencers and business case studies) and the second part is social (networking). Both are equally important and so it’s absolutely vital that business owners don’t come for only one or the other.

DONATIONS

An additional element of our events is a 20% donation to Brain Tumour Charity UK (or your chosen charity) from the ticket sales.
