The Business & IP Centre at Exeter and Barnstaple Libraries host a range of events and workshops to suit start-ups, entrepreneurs or businesses looking to learn new skills or research their industry.
Due to Covid-19, many of our events are currently hosted online, via Zoom.
Webinars run weekly on a variety of subjects and are a great way to get an overview of a new topic, or a refresher which can help you to look at your business plan in a new light. Whether you’re just starting out or an established business looking to grow, our webinars are useful, inspiring and informative.
One-to-ones are useful for enquiring about how you can access business information and support, to discuss a problem or question you have in a specific area of your business, or to find out more about Intellectual Property. Find out more information on our 1-to-1s page.

Bedroom to Business -4
September 29, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Working from Home Successfully
Having a second monitor doesn’t mean your set up to successfully work from home…. You may have already been working from home during part (or all) of the pandemic. Even if it’s second nature, or if you’re only just getting started, we can all develop bad habits.
Join the conversation and ensure you are set up for success! Have you done a personal budget and worked out your personal finances? Taking your business to the next level will require investment, where can you afford to trim expenses and invest into your business instead? We’ll teach you how to review and approach your personal finances so that you have full control.
Your potential customers will form an opinion about you in a mere 27 seconds. If you hope to attract your target customer, you need to be mindful of the personal image they’re seeing of you. Here’s what to consider and why you should invest in a professional headshot.
