Small Business Morning at Darts Farm

Small Business Morning at Darts Farm

Come along to our free, small business event at Darts Farm in Exeter with Burts Potato Chips founder, Richard Burt and sales training coach Sam Dyer.

Whether you’re already in business or are looking to start, you will get a lot out of this inspirational and informative event.

In Conversation with Richard Burt

Located at the wonderful Darts Farm in Topsham we’ll be kicking off with an engaging conversation with the founder of Burts Potato Chips, Richard Burt. He has kindly agreed to speak about his experiences as the founder of what has become a nationally recognised brand.

You will have the opportunity (when you register) to ask questions in advance that we will pose to him during the session. He’ll also be sticking around during lunch to answer any further questions you might have.

Small Business Sales Training with Sam Dyer

One of the biggest issues that small businesses regularly ask us about is how to increase sales. That’s why we invited experienced sales coach and NLP Master Practitioner, Sam Dyer to deliver a practical training session designed to give you an insight into how NLP can help you increase your sales and communicate better with your customers.

10 things you’ll learn:

  • Where your body should be
  • How to talk in their language
  • Clean language – quick and dirty
  • Why you should reduce your but!
  • Don’t spray and pray
  • Selling isn’t telling
  • Open and closed questioning
  • Reframing
  • Extravert vs introvert at meetings
  • How to choose your mood

Local Business Funding & Support

Finally, David Hinshelwood from BIP will run through the availability of local business funding and support including the Start-up & Grow Programme and the Growth Support Programme that are being funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

We will finish with a buffet lunch provided by Darts Farm that will also be an opportunity to network and share ideas with like-minded people.
