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. Launching on the 24th of September, businesses can apply for a place and pick from a range of topics – the most appropriate topics for you and your business.

Taking place across County Durham, we’ve picked easily accessible locations that will provide 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've developed these sessions for small business owners to get the knowledge they need:
