Short, snappy, knowledge packed sessions to fill your business brain!

So what is Bitesize Business?

With time and knowledge being two of the biggest pressures facing small & medium-sized businesses, we’ve created a series of short and snappy sessions exclusively for County Durham businesses to help improve their know-how on a range of business basics.

Our current programme is now available online until it’s safe to return to our easily accessible locations across County Durham. Our online sessions will continue to be held in a friendly and open atmosphere allowing you to pick up Bitesize Business tips and tricks to help your business and make the difference to your day.

Have a look at the range of bitesize sessions taking place and simply pick and mix to provide you with the support you need.

We're going to be completely flexible with delivery of these sessions - they'll be delivered online until it becomes safe to start doing physical workshop sessions again. Simply click on the button to apply for your online place below.
