Business Sheffield offers an extensive programme of FREE workshops, training sessions and networking events.

Business Sheffield are currently making support available via a series of online workshops, webinars and virtual one-to-one sessions to help keep supporting the development of businesses in Sheffield.

Using video meeting platform Zoom, our FREE sessions are hosted by experienced business advisors and/or industry experts. Drop-In Sessions are normally one-to-one with attendees allocated a slot within the event running time. Virtual workshops are limited to groups of around 10-30 participants to allow interactivity, while webinars can cater to much larger groups.

While there are also plenty of workshops that are relevant to all businesses, there are some workshops that are specifically for start-ups and a few designed especially for established businesses that have been trading for more than 3 years. We've tried to indicate this on the workshops that are specifically for these businesses.

Scroll down to browse the events and click the links for more detailed event info. Lots of the events can be booked directly via Eventbrite, though some may require you to contact our Gateway Team to register. Please call  0114 224 5000 or email businesssheffield@sheffield.gov.uk to book events where stated.

The current most comprehensive advice and guidance for Sheffield businesses, including information about grants, loans and various support schemes. 

 

 

Please Note: For the time being, our business workshop sessions will continue to be hosted as Zoom meetings. You must have a computer, laptop or tablet with at least a 10” screen, and microphone and audio capabilities in order to access an event. A camera/webcam is optional, but recommended. A free Zoom account is also required. Further instructions for accessing the event will be emailed to participants in advance.

**Please only sign up to one of our events if you are definitely planning to attend. Spaces are limited and we want to make sure the businesses that really want this support get it.

If you can’t make an event, it’s no problem as long as you let us know before the workshop. If you sign-up and don’t attend an event, we will contact you afterwards to check in and if this happens more than once, it will jeopardise your ability to sign up to future events.**

If for any reason you cannot make an event you've booked onto or you require any further information, please contact us by telephone on 0114 224 5000 or email: BusinessEvents@sheffield.gov.uk
