Events

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.

How to be productive working from home

September 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A smoothly running set-up? Or chaos for the whole household? Join Angie to consider the keys to a productive home-based business.

When running a business from home, there certain things to take into consideration. These can be the difference between a smoothly run business and a stressful, chaotic environment for everyone living under the same roof.

When working from home you won’t have a boss breathing over your neck, holding you accountable to deadlines. You won’t have to clock in and out anymore and be dictated to when you can take your lunch break or take a trip to the coffee machine.

Whilst for many of us these are reasons to work for ourselves, they can also be our downfall if we’re not careful.

In this session, we are going to cover key topics to help you run a productive business from home.
