Land of Oak & Iron Business Toolkit
Developing your business in the Land of Oak & Iron
Did you know we have a Land of Oak & Iron Business Toolkit? An online resource created specifically to help you develop and grow your business here in the Land of Oak & Iron. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, our partnership has worked together on initiatives beyond the immediate scope and resource of current funding, adding value and impact to the scheme, strengthening its legacy after Lottery funding ends
As part of the legacy work we have developed an interactive online toolkit, following consultation with partners, stakeholders and businesses throughout the Land of Oak & Iron, to provide you with a document full of information and ideas, about how your business can position itself to benefit from growth of tourism in North East England.
Whether you are self-employed, run a small team, or manage a business operating in the tourism sector of two hundred people, this toolkit is for you. It offers hands-on tools to help with the decisions that organisations working both directly and indirectly in tourism, in and around the Derwent Valley, need to make every day.
The toolkit is intended as a reference manual, providing you with information about specific areas of the tourism industry, and its aim is to help you make good decisions about how to develop your business. It will signpost you to where more in-depth resources can be found but please remember – things change, websites disappear and new trends arrive. Use the toolkit alongside your own research to ensure you are right up-to-date.
We hope you find it useful and your business thrives in the Land of Oak & Iron.
