Is a Pandemic the Right Time to Start a Business? It Just Might Be...

Let's Clear the Table and See Where the Opportunities Are! 

The Time For A New Start Programme facilitated by Terry Harmer of NLC Training is aimed at emerging businesses and businesses looking to refocus or respond to current Covid-19 crisis. It offers a fresh outlook for those who need to rethink and restart their offering, to identify current challenges and turn those challenges into opportunities.
