Business Opportunities Workshop – 12 hours free support available

What is this event about?

The unique “resource matching” workshop aims to enable businesses to identify new opportunities between delegates at the event through the matching of resources, including waste, logistics and expertise. Through BASIS, companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate sales from new markets and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy. The BASIS team will facilitate a lively and interactive session that will allow companies to exchange details about waste streams they ‘have’ on-site or ‘want’ as a resource.

Who Should Attend?

If your organisation generates significant waste streams or consumes large amounts of material, water or energy and you are an SME in the Birmingham & Solihull area, looking to lower costs, increase sales and build business contacts with other companies then you should sign up for this FREE workshop. (read more)
