Supporting Start-Up Businesses

Business Ideas Workshop

‘Physically and mentally motivating.’

‘Confidence boost.’

East of England Business Link


“Business Link is the place to go for information, practical advice and support for new and established businesses.  Our aim is to help businesses grow and become more profitable.”

Support offered includes:

  • Answers to any business question through the Information and Intelligence Centre.
  • Free one-on-one business advice from experienced business advisors.
  • Workshops and briefing covering a vast range of business topics.
  • Access to a broad range of solutions.

All support offered is independent and impartial, and many services are provided free of charge. 

Business Situation:

The East of England Business Link provides a suite of workshops for potential entrepreneurs, designed to take individuals on a successful business journey. 

 The workshops have been designed for those considering self-employment but are unsure what first steps to take.  In particular the Business Ideas workshop is for people who think they want to be their own boss, but haven’t had the right idea yet.

Business Solution:

Lighthouse Consultants is the lead supplier for the East of England Business Link’s Business Ideas Workshops.

 These one-day workshops are fun, informal and informative, and aim for each delegate to leave feeling inspired and full of entrepreneurial spirit.  They cover: 

  • Why you want to start your own business
  • Your personal profile
  • How to generate more ideas
  • Sources of business opportunities
  • Where to find customers
  • Gaining inspiration from success
  • Building confidence


Lighthouse Consultants has consistently received positive feedback from delegates:

 ‘Physically and mentally motivating.’

‘Confidence boost.’

 Some potential delegates have specifically asked Business Link for dates when our presenters were in attendance, due to the positive word of mouth feedback from previous delegates.

 This is assisted, in part, by the fact that our lead deliverer is also an accredited business advisor, so has an additional depth of experience to bring to the workshops.
