What?

Community Business Weekend is an open-door programme of events, which means physically opening your doors to the public and inviting them in to visit and discover your community business.

The main event is sharing your story and showcasing opportunities for people to get involved.

Your story is important. People will want to know who you are, the journey you have been on in creating your business, what you’ve learnt and what you and your team have personally got out of being involved. These things are inspiring to others and will help people to connect with you and the values that underpin the business.

The best way to engage people is to create a welcoming atmosphere: break out the food, drinks and entertainment to add a sense of occasion.

This is about celebrating your community business and all your hard work!
