A new programme of subsidised business skills masterclasses has been arranged by enterprise agency MENTA for 2018.

The half-day sessions will cover a range of key topics for businesses, including cloud accounting, presentation and media skills, using Facebook for business and customer service.

Venues will include Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Kesgrave and Framlingham, with the masterclasses being designed to support established company owners, their staff, the self-employed people and start-up businesses.

Leanne Castle from MENTA, who organises its masterclass programme, said: “The feedback from delegates during 2017 was excellent. People commented on the high quality content of the training, the high calibre of our trainers and how much they appreciated their affordability.

“The venues we use include Milsoms at Kesgrave Hall, IpCity Ipswich and Framlingham Technology Centre, all of which provide free, onsite parking for delegates.

“We will continue to subsidise the training sessions as its vitally important business can access cost effective business knowledge and up to date information.”

The masterclasses cost just £40 each to attend and are now open for bookings. For full details visit www.menta.org.uk.
