Welcome to the Small Business Clinic

The Small Business Clinic runs workshops for small businesses, charities and groups across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The workshops give you help with the practical aspects of running a business or organisation: such as sales, marketing and using IT effectively. They are designed to be informative, friendly and reasonably priced. With no more than 10 attendees, there's plenty of time to ask about your business needs and a chance to network as well.

The Small Business Clinic is owned by Nepeta Consulting. Based in Malvern and Ledbury, we offer business and IT services to small businesses and organisations across the two counties. Our aim is to make all subjects understandable for all. We speak in plain English and explain all the terms you hear about, don't quite understand but feel afraid to ask about.

Our workshops are run at various locations in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Below you will see listed the next three workshops. You can click on the image to book tickets for these. Alternatively, look at our workshop timetable for a full list of forthcoming workshops. Do get in touch with us if you have any questions.
