A north Northumberland business coach is about to share the secrets of owning a business and at the same time giving a helping hand to young disadvantaged students.

Ex-pharmaceutical biochemist, Gareth Shackleton, from Alnwick, runs ActionCOACH and his new workshop is designed to help company owners step away from the day-to-day running of their business with confidence and without losing profitability.

“My definition of a business is a commercial profitable enterprise that works without you,” said Gareth. ”I’ll help business owners who are already performing well to be even better and I’ll help them identify where they are on the journey from owning a job to owning a business.”

Gareth’s course, entitled the Six Steps to Building a Better Business, will take the delegates through some of the problems faced in the world of commerce and industry including cash flow, productivity and staffing issues before asking them to challenge their business beliefs to help move them forwards.

Gareth will also tackle one of the most common complaints made by small to medium-sized business owners, the issue of competing with large companies on price.

Tickets for the event at The Castle Gate, Melbourne Street, Newcastle, on Thursday, November 24, from 2pm to 5pm are available from http://actioncoachne.event brite.co.uk
A limited number are still available free of charge and tickets which come with an individual coaching session are £25. Businesses wishing to help students to learn science-related subjects, a key to innovation in business, can buy tickets at £50 each which also includes a coaching session.
