Essex Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is inviting businesses across the county to the event, entitled Beat the Recession and Boost Sales, with marketing expert and businessman Steve Clarke.

“Having built and then sold my previous Harlow-based company allowing me to retire at the age of 45 I suddenly found that I needed a challenge that used my expertise which is why I am working with Essex FSB to help small businesses in the county beat the recession even if their customers are spending less,” said Mr Clarke.

Those attending will be invited to make a donation to Essex Air Ambulance. To book a place at the seminar, which takes place from 5pm to 7.30pm at The Colchester Weston Business Centre, Hawkins Road, visit www.fsb.org.uk/essex/beat-recession-colchester.
