Who is this for: Essential Business Soft Skills is a talk and hands-on workshop for new entrepreneurs, start-up founders, solopreneurs, freelancers and small business owners hosted by Benedicta Banga- Founder of Career Management Agency Gradstrategy. The event is suitable for both product and service based businesses. Why: Every year thousands of people start a new business and many of them have fantastic ideas. It's never been as easy as it is now to start a new business. Anyone that wants can start a business at the touch of a button without leaving the comfort of their own home. In 2016, there were 80 new businesses started every hour, but statistics show that only 45% of start-ups survive beyond five years. Figures also suggest that 80-90% of businesses that fail, do so because of cash flow. (source: ONS).
