After the fun and craziness of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, which brings Europe’s nations together (congratulations to Sweden by the way), LEXSHA is now doing the same for European entrepreneurs.
LEXSHA Goes Live
This month has seen the roll out of the new entrepreneur’s networking platform, LEXSHA, bringing small business owners together from France, Sweden, Portugal, The Netherlands, Greece, Lithuania and the UK. LEXSHA is an innovative, online portal connecting businesses who want to learn, explore and share practical ideas and experiences with likeminded businesses.
As the UK partner, Exponential Training is coordinating a team of sixteen National Facilitators who in turn are working with 80+ businesses throughout Europe.
What is a LEXSHA?
LEXSHA is a European funded project designed to help small businesses to learn and share ideas and expertise with each other. LEXSHA is also the term used to describe a short, practical piece of knowledge or experience that an entrepreneur shares with other entrepreneurs. A LEXSHA can be prepared in any digital format such as a podcast or audio file, a short video, an e-book, a Word or PDF document, a checklist or even a mini case study.
What is unique about LEXSHA is the content has not been produced by training schools or universities, but by entrepreneurs. This means that it is relevant, sensitive to the needs of smaller businesses and to the point. One UK business, Dreams of Chocolate, owned by partners Matt Andrews and Chris Ordish, is preparing a LEXSHA about organising an event. Among other things, Dreams of Chocolate supplies huge chocolate fountains for weddings and therefore making sure everything runs smoothly calls for meticulous planning. Chris’s LEXSHA will share his approach to planning – look out for the Dreams of Chocolate LEXSHA later this month.
