British Library Business & IP Centre reflects on Reset. RestartEarlier this year always possible was commissioned, in partnership with Brighton Chamber and Business & IP Centre Brighton & Hove, to design and run a series of online workshops for small businesses and sole-traders. The Reset. Restart programme, launched by British Library, aimed to support businesses impacted by the pandemic. The British Library has caught up with some of the business leaders that benefitted from the programme, their case studies include two participants of our workshops. Roxy van der Post, a Dutch-born documentary filmmaker and lifestyle photographer, began Myosotis Film & Photography in the summer of 2020. After settling in Brighton in February 2021 and having no prior knowledge of Brighton or its business community, the Reset. Restart sessions run by BIPC Sussex were a fantastic introduction to the city and its ambitious entrepreneurs. The informal nature of the Reset. Restart workshops meant Roxy could easily engage with like-minded business owners and quickly grow her network. “All sessions included interviews with entrepreneurs whose fascinating stories of business growth provided much inspiration and motivation, an informative presentation on topics ranging from finding your ideal customer to pricing models and how to establish valuable connections, and room for open, but facilitated discussions, all expertly woven together by Lucy Paine of always possible.” It was through these events that Roxy was introduced to Business Model Canvas, which “was an absolute game-changer that provided more clarity and confidence than any other business plan.” Continue reading Roxy’s account along with many other Reset.
