We are pleased to have a start-up businessman as speaker for the entrepreneur’s club meeting we are running at the Redbridge Enterprise Desk. Celestine Ekpenyong is the owner and Director of Every Box Ticked Consultancy Ltd. that specialises in supporting businesses in tendering and procurement.
Tuesday 24th November 12.45 start, stay until 2.30. St John’s Church, Seven Kings, IG2 7BB.
Our theme for November is on money and legal issues, so what is Celestine’s message?
Know where you are heading and where you want your business to be in 5, 10, 20 years. Once you are clear about this then you can develop in a strategic way. You will be able to make your decisions on loans, structure, pricing, partnerships, scale, staff etc once you know your direction. Celestine will also be talking about tenders and procurement and does not think being a small and new start-up is a barrier to this.
Celestine is an experienced business consultant and will offer challenges and support. Although this is aimed at start-ups, it is open to all. He is willing to share his business tips about avoiding the pitfalls he has experienced!
As always, these meetings are about learning from each other, sharing expertise, building networks and having a clear next step for your business.
Celestine is a member of the Redbridge Chamber of Commerce and attended the breakfast this week. He put a question to Wes Streeting MP about the problem businesses face in getting finance – see him in action!
