Spark workshops have now changed as a reflection of the current pandemic and will be delivered online.
This series of pre-recorded workshops is designed not only to give students and graduates of the University of Leeds an insight into what running their own business will be like, but also to provide you with very practical advice and tips for dealing with the things you will encounter when thinking about, and commencing, a new commercial venture.
Current students can register their interest in the Spark workshop series via Careerweb only on the days set out (currently Mondays and Wednesdays). You will then be sent login details to your student email address which will allow you access to the online courses. You only require to sign up for the workshop series once.
From then on, the workshops will be available for you to access at any time of day or night and are available throughout the year. They are in short bite size chunks, easy to digest and follow, and you can dip in and out of them at your own pace. These are pre-recorded workshops.
Once you have signed up for the workshop series you will then be sent login details to your student email address in due course. You can then access the workshops 24/7.
Once you have completed the workshops, you can attend Q and A sessions with the presenters where you are required to pose your questions about the specific workshop content. You must have completed the workshops before attending the Q and A sessions.
Following on from the above, you can request a 1-2-1 virtual meeting with a Spark Business Advisor to discuss your business idea in greater depth by contacting Richard Doyle on firstname.lastname@example.org
