Black Asian, and Minority Ethnic business founders being offered free workshops to boost their trade

Sarah Mason 12th Oct, 2021

BLACK, Asian, and Minority Ethnic business founders from across the region are being offered free places on workshops to help boost their businesses.

To mark the start of Black History Month, the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is running a series of workshops covering topics such as how to launch a business and creating a better online presence.

There are 50 on offer and the classes will start on October 19 running until December 7.

After taking the workshops the business owners will know how to develop a better understanding of their customer profile and journey, as well as how to make their business stand out from their competitors and how to better sell their business.

The classes will be delivered by Naeem Ari of NAC Consulting, who has provided management consultancy services to CEOs, directors and the senior leaders of major brands within retail, leisure, hospitality, manufacturing and the public sector.

He said: “The project was setup to connect Black, Asian and minority ethnic entrepreneurs to resources to help them have their own successful businesses.

“It is a dream of many of us to have our own business and this project is designed to help them get momentum towards that dream, and I look forward to working with a new batch of entrepreneurs.”
