Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Cllr Adele Warren, said: “These events further our commitment to supporting local businesses.
“They provide invaluable advice to those already running a business as well as anyone interested in starting one.
“It’s important that our business community is connected up, so these events are also a chance to meet up with fellow business owners and entrepreneurs to network and share ideas.
“I would encourage anyone who is interested in boosting their business knowledge to attend and take advantage of the free expert advice.”
Both events are hosted by Bolton Library’s Business & Intellectual Property Centre, a national network of business support at libraries which is led by The British Library.
