I completed the free Business Start-up live workshop course (3 sessions) and I am so happy I did! It was really informative and interactive. The presenters were really good with delivering the information and sharing so many useful tips and tools. They did an excellent job at engaging all the attendees and answering everyone's questions. It was not a boring one-way presentation and anyone who is new to starting a business will find this course really valuable.
Helpful, personal,relevant service with a smile- I would recommend anyone thinking of starting a business invest time with MENTA. Your networking starts here..
The three workshops were invaluable in content and delivery. A great opportunity to ask lots of questions and gain really useful tools to making a success of our business start up. Thank you so much - thoroughly enjoyed them all.
