I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it before.
The meeting was about starting up your own business. The Welsh Assembly Government have these various schemes to help people set up as self-employed, but their central online booking system leaves something to be desired because the email I received clearly said it was from 1.00 - 4.00 pm, whereas the session was actually from 10.00 am - 3.00 pm!
Anyway, the marketing was in the afternoon, which was the part I wanted and after a useful session, my business idea is starting to come clearer. There is another session on Thursday, but I won't go to that one because it's just about profit and loss and cash flow, which I already know how to do from the years when we ran our own company. I will, however, go to next Tuesday's session on tax, National Insurance and legal issues which could be useful.
