Business Development Session - Encouraging Local
This is a blended session for self-employed people and new business starters to come together and discuss issues and challenges in a group setting.
Hosted by Real Ideas, we will discuss business issues and collectively work together to find solutions.
Our topic for this month is one which is important to all small businesses. How do we encourage customers to buy from local suppliers? Whether you offer a service or a product, the environmental imperative exists across many sectors to reduce the impact of globalisation by shopping closer to home.
Plymouth is aiming to produce all it consumes by 2054 and in order to do this, we need to have access to loads of different products and services that are currently imported. Can we just build the system to make this happen or will it need a paradigm shift to any chance of success?
This is a big conversation. There is a will. Do you want to help find the way?
There will be a limited number of tickets to join in person but plenty more via a weblink.
