Self employment as a career option

An opportunity to explore starting up and running your own business, build the confidence and motivation to succeed, and find out what support is available.

What to expect from this webinar

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run your own business?

Maybe you have an idea based on your passion and skills - or it’s come about because of the circumstances you find yourself in during these unusual times - but you just haven’t found the confidence or taken action to put it into practice yet?

Join us at this interactive, informal session to explore the benefits and connect with the personal qualities of being a successful entrepreneur, network with other like-minded people, and find out once and for all if this could be for you.


  • Explore what it takes to start up and run a successful business
  • Understand the benefits and challenges, and personal qualities required, drawing on your own strengths, talents, and experiences
  • Build confidence, clarity, motivation and resilience to help you to be successful
  • Benefit from the opportunity to network, including breakout rooms with smaller groups, and experience a boost from amazing support from other participants

As a take-away you will be provided with a workbook so you can record and build on your ideas, learning and actions from the day, as well as gaining more information about Business Gateway services to support you.
