SMALL businesses will get the chance to learn how to thrive at the same time as raising money for charity.

A practical networking session is being held in aid of the Brendoncare Foundation, hosted by the University of Portsmouth’s business school on November 7.

‘Ten things to do in the next ten days’ aims to inspire small business owners and decision makers in large businesses to make things happen to ensure growth.

Business expert and author Robert Craven will lead the event.

He will discuss in plain language what businesses do to make themselves successful, and help guide delegates towards realising the actions they can take to improve their bottom line.

Nick Capon, of Portsmouth Business School, is running the event.

He said: ‘It is a major coup to have Robert come to Portsmouth. It is the perfect pre-Christmas event to both inspire local businesspeople and to raise money for a local charity. We hope to have at least 100 people attend and raise £5,000 for Brendoncare.
