The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity is proud to be hosting an event at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on Wednesday 8 November 2023, alongside a panel of business professionals as part of Leicester Business Festival 2023.
Titled ‘Everything you always wanted to know about starting a business but were afraid to ask’, the event will run between 10am-12pm and take on a ‘Question Time’ format, designed for new business start-ups and people who want to grow their business.
Our panel of professionals and new business gurus will be sharing their do’s and don’ts and successes and failures of life in business.
The audience is in charge, and the panel is at your disposal. Ask anything you like and expect an honest answer full of wisdom, inspiration and hopefully some humour too!
