Seven expert business speakers have been lined up for local SMEs to enjoy at a Federation of Small Businesses 'Bootcamp' meeting in April.

The Army Flying Centre in Stockbridge has been chosen to stage only the second ‘Bootcamp’ ever held in the South West by Britain’s biggest small business group – the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) - following a hugely successful first event in Exeter in March.

The ‘Bootcamp’ session will take place on Wednesday 24 April with speakers including Emily and Alan Braithwaite, Nicky Rudd, Tom Vaughton, Jeremy Mason and Kelly and James West leading five short, sharp sessions on practical subjects designed to help SMEs with their marketing, SEO presence, video skills, social media and networking skills.

It adds up to a package that Ruth Lambert, FSB Development Manager for Wiltshire and Somerset, feels will really energise the FSB members and non-members alike - who are already signing up in good numbers for the event.

Ruth said: “We were thrilled with how out first Bootcamp in Exeter went and we believe we now have everything in place to create another cracking meeting for local SME owners and sole traders in this area to enjoy. 

“We have entitled this event ‘Make Your Business Fly’ and we really feel it will help people to do just that.

"The speakers are brilliant, the ever-supportive venue is truly amazing and we are confident people will go away from the day feeling inspired and excited as well as having made some great contacts.” 

Tickets for the Zoho UK sponsored event are free and are available here

There are still a limited amount of exhibition stands available at the reduced rate of £100 – with a 25 per cent discount for FSB members.
