A change is as good as a rest

Invest Ashfield & Mansfield - The area for growth

It’s an old saying but still as true today as it’s ever been.  These days, change is all around us and we need to continually adapt in order to succeed.  Indeed, it can be a matter of survival.  Traditionally at this time of year, our thoughts turn to holidays and sunshine.  So whether you’re looking forward to a break, already had one or even trying to avoid the warm weather completely, you might find you’d like to try something new.

Business events

If you find this time of year is a little quieter than normal, why not use the time to attend a business event?  While August is rather quieter than other months, there are still a number of events running during the month.  Particularly from the Digital Growth Programme which offers online marketing events and IT courses.  What’s more, many of these are completely FREE to attend.  They use a number of expert speakers and tend to run courses a number of times in different locations.  So even if you can’t make the next event, you can easily diarise a future one.  Find out more.

In fact, we try to showcase most of the local business events on our events calendar.  It’s worth checking this out on a regular basis as we are always adding new events.  If you are a digital or creative business, you should also check out The Big House.  They offer a variety of services, grants and FREE events.  Again some of these are running during August.  Find out more.

Retail therapy

Whether you are a retailer or just a keen shopper, opportunities in Ashfield & Mansfield abound.  If you run a takeaway then the event on 8 August could help give you ideas on how to improve what you do and gain more customers as a result.  Moreover, if you are looking for new premises, why not try our online commercial property search.  There are a number of great options around Ashfield and Mansfield, including the newly refurbished Idlewells indoor market.  And there’s the Great British High Street Awards open to applications until 15 August.  Brilliant.
