Dragon slayer to offer tips on business

BUSINESSES and aspiring entrepreneurs are being invited to get tips from a successful Dragon applicant.

Dragon’s Den success story Solvej Biddle will be one of many revealing their winning formula in a series of events at Newcastle City Library to support the north east’s entrepreneurial and business talent.

The Science of Success event series will be launched on September 5, and is part of the development of the first regional Business & IP Centre.

The Centre will provide information, resources and advice specially tailored to help entrepreneurs and businesses on their journey to success.

Solvej Biddle is to headline the launch event and will be sharing her expert advice and formula for international business success.

Her experience is based on the creation of Content & Calm – a successful firm that designs products to make travelling with children a happier and easier experience.

Other events in the forthcoming series will see The Apprentice runner up and Greggs Plc high flyer Helen Milligan talking about how to pitch for finance successfully on September 22.
