Eventbrite - The Next Step – a focus on your business

Come along and join us at West Highland College UHI, Fort William, to hear what assistance there is for you in taking that Next Step in business. What could the Next Step be:-

  • Taking on new staff members – is help is available for training them, can you help them get a qualification?
  • New Products – have you an innovative new idea or product you want to explore? Is help or finance available to help you do this?
  • Upskill your existing workforce – what can be done to help upskill your staff whilst also employing them at work?
  • Want to find new markets? – what help is there with market research? Do you need a link with a European distributor? Do you want to sell to America and the Far East? Who can help you?
  • Offer a student placement – maybe for the summer or to work on a specific project?
  • Want to network and collaborate with other businesses? – the FSB, Chambers of Commerce and others can help
  • Or is the Next Step setting up on your own – what help and assistance is out there?


The University of the Highlands and Islands is delighted to invite you to an evening event that can answer these questions. Get a chance to chat through your ideas with:-
