david-gibson ''WHETHER you're a start-up or a blue chip company, coaching is essential for business success,'' says David Gibson, one of the experienced advisors at Northallerton's Popup Business Cafe The café is the latest in a line of award-winning Popup Business Cafes that offer business people an informal atmosphere to talk confidentially with local business experts. Mr Gibson said: ‘’If you are an SME or micro business, you might be working alone or with very few people around you. Even the biggest companies and most successful business people need advisors to confide in and bounce ideas off.’’ Having run a marketing consultancy since 2008, David is familiar with the problems that small business owners face, such as obtaining funding and increasing customer outreach. And as a triathlon coach in his spare time, he sees similarities in how to overcome difficulties in both disciplines. David added: ‘’It is important in both to have a coach or mentor to help you overcome your barriers. Don’t be afraid to get help and support.” The Popup Business Café is organised by How’s Business, the growth hub for York, North Yorkshire and East Riding. It is free to attend and will be held from 9am-1pm, Thursday 3rd November at the Evolution Business Centre, Northallerton. Local experts will be available to discuss topics such as marketing, finance, tax and accountancy. To book a place, click here or visit the website.
