Big Ideas For Rural Angus

Rural businesses in Brechin, Kirriemuir and the Angus Glens are invited to sign up for The BIG Idea workshops this autumn.

The BIG Idea helps find new and profitable opportunities for existing businesses.

The format challenges the way those taking part think about future opportunities and it gives participants the knowledge and confidence to market their ideas.

It is aimed at those who want to expand but are not sure which idea offers the best prospects.

The first part shows new ways to evaluate business ideas and then shows how to make that idea profitable and sustainable.

This custom made format is a tried and tested means to formulate ideas, check whether the ideas will work and to plan for the future.

Two workshops are being held in each burgh from 10.30am to 3pm and places are limited to 10 participants for each one.

The Kirriemuir workshops will take place on 29 September and 6 October, while the dates for Brechin will be set later.

The BIG Idea Workshops has been developed by a local company, Contract Marketers Scotland and its delivery in Angus is supported with funding from Angus Council and the European Regional Development Fund.
