Thursday 13th August… 7.15-9 pm… at Goodmayes Community Centre, Green Lane, IG3 9SE
This was the first new community centre to open for 20 years in Redbridge and started trading in December 2013. It is being run by the Goodmayes Residents Association (GRASS) of which Keith is chair. The Centre is a company limited by guarantee and a charity.
GRASS successfully negotiated with Swan Housing Association for the property and good/workable terms for a community centre that raises its own income from bookings, not grants. The centre has merged its strong values about local community use with meticulous business planning. Keith is a retired chartered accountant and so knows about running a profitable business.
Come and hear from Keith about:
negotiating contracts, business planning, the importance of values, cash flow, and running a community project without grants.
As always, the enterprise club is about meeting other start-ups, hearing about yours successes, sharing your learning needs, mutual support and networking.
Please be prepared to share a success from your business this week! Teas, coffees and refreshments. Open to all start-ups! 🙂
Advance notice: the next evening on-the-road enterprise club is scheduled for Wednesday 26th August (tbc)
