Business Masterclass Workshops

After a year of global disruption and interruption, businesses are planning for better times with a focus on rebuilding as quickly as possible.

Funded by Anglo American, the Redcar and Cleveland Business Engagement Team in partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Business Network are excited to announce a series of free virtual masterclasses and virtual workshops to support both new-start and established businesses currently operating in Redcar and Cleveland.

The series of free masterclasses and workshops have been specially designed to help businesses increase knowledge, recover lost ground, maximise profits and support the business to better position themselves for the future.

The series will begin with a virtual introductory workshop on Thursday 28 October at 5:30pm then operate twice a week for five weeks starting Monday 1 November where Teesside industry professionals will deliver a masterclass and workshop focussing on one of ten key business topics before concluding with a celebration event on Tuesday 7 December at the Civic Heart, Redcar.

There will also be an opportunity for Redcar and Cleveland based businesses to apply for funding towards the costs of a digital project to enhance their business. More details will be provided at the Introduction session on week one – Thursday 28 October at 5.30 pm.
