The seminars will take place across the district

Businesses are invited to attend the first in a series of free events aimed at helping them to improve and grow organised by Rother District Council.

The council is working with business coaching and support company Pro-actions to put on four seminars this year in Bexhill, Battle and Rye. The first seminar, ‘Improve your sales and win more business’, will be held at Bexhill Town Hall from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Tuesday, July 5.

Business owners will receive tips and advice on techniques to help them improve their sales success rates and win more customers.

Deputy leader and business and voluntary sector liaison Martin Kenward said: “It’s vital that we do whatever we can to work with partners to help boost the district’s economy.

“These seminars will offer companies a fantastic opportunity to benefit from expert advice and guidance which can help them to grow and develop.

“The events are completely free but places are limited and booking is essential so I’d urge businesses to reserve their place as soon as possible to make sure they don’t miss out.”

Further seminars will follow in September, October and December, with topics including ‘taking your business to the next level’, marketing and time management.
