Free online business training for Guinness residents

29 June 2021

We’ve partnered with award winning Rebel Business School to offer FREE training courses this summer and autumn to Guinness residents who are planning to start or are already running their own business.

Rebel promoThe next FREE online course will run from 6 – 17 September, and will provide practical advice, support, and guidance on how to set up and run your own business.  You’ll develop skills including marketing, sales and budgeting to help launch your business and build your confidence.

It’s especially important in these difficult economic times to support enterprise and give people with good business ideas access to expert advice to make their ideas a reality, so we’re pleased to be continuing this great work.

How will the course work?

Over five days Rebel Business School will provide live seminars, pre-recorded content, practical exercises, and online networking that will show you how to adapt your business for online audiences and how to develop your business skills and knowledge.

The sessions are led by successful entrepreneurs, whose events regularly attract over 100 aspiring business owners.

Simon Paine, Rebel Business School co-founder and CEO said: “There’s nothing better than meeting someone with no business experience and guiding them through their first sale – it can transform lives. You don’t need money, experience, or a university degree to start a business. You just need an idea, some passion and a bit of help.”

What does the course cover?

During the week, you will learn more about business through practical and hands-on sessions. The areas covered will be:

  • Bootstrap your business
  • Social media
  • Sales & marketing
  • Build a free website
  • Tax, VAT & legal

Natasha completed the course and has used her new skills and knowledge to grow her chocolate business.

“Going on the course gave me the confidence to make things happen. If I didn’t attend, I don’t believe I would have got as far as I have, it’s given me the leverage to take it the next level for 2021. You may not get this kind of opportunity anywhere else, not for free anyway!”
