About this Harrogate Drop-in session

Organised by North Yorkshire Council, and supported by SME Growth Managers, the free monthly 90 minute Harrogate drop-in sessions are already sparking new ideas, highlighting opportunities for funding support and identifying new business opportunities.

With a key theme every month and guest experts, ranging from Marketing and Sales, through to Managing Team Performance, Strategy, Improving IT, Legal and Finance, the team cover the business issues that matter most. The theme this month: could exporting transform your business? How to find your perfect export market.

At every session, delegates also have the chance to meet our Harrogate based Growth Manager, Beata Olah, to discuss any funding or learning support.

‘Connect Over a Cuppa’ is free to attend for SMEs based in North Yorkshire. At present, all 90 minute sessions will be held in person in Harrogate in 2024.
