Practical advice will also be available on a wide range of business topics including access to finance; social media; skills and recruiting an apprentice; websites; export; business planning and developing new products and services.

Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said:

“This is our first Popup Caf� in Brighouse and I encourage local businesses to take advantage of the wide range of support available all under one roof. These events are very popular and the positive feedback we receive from businesses time and time again is testament to their value and why it’s worth business owners booking a place.”

Stefanie Hopkins, Managing Director of Brighouse-based agency Faith PR is one of the experts who will be there on the day offering free advice to businesses. She said:

“I’m looking forward to attending this event and will be ready and waiting to answer any questions that businesses may have on all aspects of social media. I’ve spent many years working with businesses in the region and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience and offering practical support to Brighouse firms.”

Rad Miller of video production company, Pocket Projects attended the Otley Popup Caf� earlier this year and explains:

“I found the event really useful because I not only spoke to the experts I needed but I also got to meet specialists that have helped with other areas of my business, which I didn’t expect.”

The pop up will be at Prego from 9-12pm on Tuesday 26 September. If you’re a business and would like to book place, please resgister here:
