Events and seminars


We have been holding a series of seminars on auto-enrolment since August 2014. The latest planned seminars will be at 9 o'clock  and 3 o'clock on Thursday, 5th February 2015.

Numbers at the auto-enrolment seminars are being kept deliberately low at just 10 clients per seminar to ensure all clients have an opportunity to ask questions. The seminar is for about an hour with a question and answer session straight afterwards.

If you are interested in attending a seminar please contact Julie to reserve a place. Please specify the seminar you wish to attend. Places are limited to 2 per client. The auto-enrolment seminars are provided free to clients and non clients of Friend & Grant. Don't worry if you can't make the one in February as we will be holding them on a quarterly basis over the next year or so. If you are interested let us know and we will provide future planned dates.

At Friend & Grant we have for a number of years offered business seminars aimed at all sectors of the business community. Past seminars have included one for Business Startups, the Construction Industry Scheme, Employment Law and Health & Safety Legislation. 

Our seminars are usually carried out at our offices in Strood near Rochester where we have the facilities to provide small seminars for up to 23 people.

On 19th December 2013 we held a workshop hosted by Sage looking at auto-enrolment and their latest software. The workshop was attended by a number of our clients whose staging dates were due in 2014. The workshop was a great success and was a real eye opener for attendees.

We also held a seminar on 23rd October 2013 an introduction to Kashflow, a cloud based accounts software, and how the software can transform your business. Further details can be found here. The seminar was FREE and open to clients and non clients of Friend & Grant Ltd.

During 2013 we held two seminars on Social Media the last was on 12th June 2013 at Bryant House and focused on how facebook can be used for business. The seminars were carried out by Zoe Cairns. Feedback from Zoe's seminars was great. Here are just some of the many fantastic comments:

“An eye opener! Very inspiring”

“Absolutely fantastic! Zoe is a fountain of knowledge on social media. My time could not have been better spent”

“Excellent- some really useful guidance and information especially for someone who came in a little unsure whether it would be relevant/useful. Myths and doubts dispelled!”

“I wasn’t expecting to learn very much but have learnt masses! I wasn’t so keen to do it but now ready to go!”

During 2012 we also formed a Social Media Group and held 4 successful sessions throughout the year.

If you are interested in attending a future seminar please contact Julie Edwards  to register your interest.
