Reset. Restart Business Workshops
Reset. Restart is a programme of FREE webinars and support sessions from the British Library to help your business vercome obstacles and thrive in the current climate.
Reset. Restart began during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic with the aim to support small businesses to adapt and weather the storm. Even though the set of challenges business owners are facing today have changed, we know that help is just as necessary now as it was then.
Join one or more of our series of webinars for practical, jargon-free training and advice from marketing to sales, current trends and, of course, funding. We’re running these monthly so make sure you check back here to see what’s coming up. You can either book on to all of them or pick and choose from the list below.
Reset. Restart is being delivered by the British Library’s Business & IP Centre through BIPC Bolton at Bolton Library. We may share your data with your nearest regional Business & IP Centre, who may contact you to offer follow-up support as part of the programme.
Reset. Restart: How to raise the money you need, now
, 3pm – 4.30pm
Your business has made it through all the challenges the pandemic has thrown at your cash flow, and your service model is likely to be a hybrid of the original set-up and an evolution of your COVID pivot. You can see opportunities on the horizon and want to meet them head on.
Now might be the time to invest in new processes, people or equipment that help your business thrive.
If you’ve never fundraised for your business before, but recognise now is the time to try, this 90-minute session will make it achievable and give you a step-by-step plan for funding success.
Reset. Restart: The steps to sell with confidence

Whether you’re a side-hustler, freelancer, founder, or in any role that requires you to meet people and grow your business, mastering the sales mind-set is essential to building a client list and growing your revenue.
How often does the fear of rejection or of coming across “salesy” stop you from approaching strangers to turn them into potential clients?
Your mind-set affects your business more than your skills or strategy. After this 90-minute session, you will gain practical tools you can apply immediately.
Reset. Restart: What you need to know about foodservice trends
, 2pm – 3pm
Join us to learn about prominent trends influencing the restaurant industry and how your business can capitalise on them. If you are running a café or restaurant, or offer a catering, takeaway or home delivery service, you will not want to miss this.
Using the latest insights from global market researchers, Mintel, we will cut through all the jargon and data to bring you the headlines in how the industry is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how operators should respond to changes in consumer behaviour.
Reset. Restart: New marketing ideas that work
, 10am – 11.30am
Join us to discover a host of new ways to reinvigorate your marketing.
The uncertainty of recent years has shown that pivoting away from an original plan can lead to otherwise unexplored opportunities, which have, for many, proved successful and lucrative.
This session helps you to be comfortable with implementing changes and experimenting with new marketing ideas; and takes you through the channels, routes and audiences that help your business move forward and grow.
During the session we’ll introduce over 40 specific marketing tactics. You will then have the opportunity to choose one of them and devise an action plan that you can implement it straight away.
