Inclusive Biz Foundations
One workshop closer to a service that's better for everyone
* £300 if you already have the Inclusive Content Toolkit. £345 if you don’t (but you’ll get one).
Payment plans are available.
You don’t need a spiel about why your small business needs to be inclusive, do you?
You’re already convinced right down to your toes.
You want every single person who comes across your business to stop in their tracks and think "this is for me too" especially people who are routinely excluded from the white, middle class women dominated online business space.
You want people to be able to get through the front door, feel welcomed and seen, and for your service to totally hit the spot for them.
You know a rainbow logo, a corporate-speak diversity statement, or a two-year-old BLM highlight isn’t gonna cut it. But what will?
And that’s the bit where you do a great impression of a deer caught in headlights.
“Where do I even start? What if I say or do the wrong thing and cause more harm? Oh god, what if I get called out?! What if it comes across as performative? Shit, now I’m centering myself. Ok, come on, I should’ve done more already…so, where do I even start?”
Listen, we can sort this out, ok?
What is Inclusive Biz Foundations?
Inclusive Biz Foundations gives you the know-how and the wraparound support to stop thinking about doing something and actually do something.
We'll have a half day (3.5 hour) intensive Zoom workshop
Just you, me and three small service-based biz pals.
I’ll hold your hands and we’ll walk together through the fundamentals of making YOUR business inclusive.
No one-size-fits-all approach here, I’ll be creating something fresh for my four new inclusion BFFs.
After the workshop, you won’t be left to navigate tricky terrain on your own.
I’ll be there, keeping you moving in the right direction and making sure you don’t fall down a ravine (metaphorically).
For four weeks after the workshop, you can shoot me an email and I’ll reply within two business days.
Got a follow up question about anything in the workshop? Want me to check a social media post or your website tweaks? Need help finding the right words? Then I’ll see you in your inbox.
A forever invite to my bi-monthly client-only co-working sessions
So you can carve out protected time with me alongside you to answer questions. Because you and I both know that if we don’t put a date in the diary, it’ll drop off your to do list.
And if you don’t have it already, you’ll get the Inclusive Content Toolkit
The toolkit's like grammarly but for inclusion. It'll help you create content that shows your community you give a damn.
Your approach is absolutely bang on for me, it's educational, approachable and fun. You have a skill for making a topic so many people are fearful to discuss really accessible.

Meet your inclusion sidekick
I’m Sim (she/they) 👋🏽
I’ve been doing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) work since before iPhones and Instagram existed.
I’ve got an MA in Race and Ethnicity in one pocket, Feminist Coach Theory training in the other, and a rucksack bursting with lived experience on my back.
I’ve audited and trained big corporates with more staff than a football stadium, national charities, marketing agencies, political parties…
And I’m bringing it all to you. Because whilst we don’t have the resources of big business, our agility and big hearts is what’s really going to change the world.
Let me show you how in Inclusive Biz Foundations.
How will it work?
You fill in a self-assessment questionnaire all about your business
I have a snoop and get to know your business and your key challenges. That will help me to tailor the half day intensive to what you collectively need
Whilst I do that, you watch two ‘WTF does that mean?’ bitesize vids so you’re clear on key lingo and concepts. That’ll mean we’re all on the same page before the big (half) day.
We jump on Zoom for the half day intensive (yes, we have breaks).
You start putting your inclusion plans into practice with whenever-you-need-it email support on hand (I'll reply within 2 business days) for four weeks. You can also join my bi-monthly co-working sessions for as long as I run them.
Limited time investment but high-impact
Inclusive Biz Foundations will take around:
45 minutes to an hour to fill in the questionnaire (I dive deep). You need to complete it two weeks before the workshop.
20 minutes to watch the ‘wtf does that mean?’ videos (around 10 mins each) before the workshop.
3.5 hours for the workshop
A few mins here and there to whizz off your questions by email and read the answers
An hour every two months for co-working (if you choose to join us)
The workshop was so good especially if you have "taking DEI more seriously" on your to-do list but it keeps slipping down. Sim creates a really safe space to be really open about thoughts and feelings and I went away knowing some of the things I want to tackle next.

There are two prices, depending on whether you’ve already bought the Inclusive Content Toolkit.
Why? I can’t cover all the ins-and-outs of accessible and inclusive content in the workshop. And I don’t need to, it’s all in the toolkit.
Together, Inclusive Biz Foundations and the Inclusive Content Toolkit will support you to put inclusion through the core of your business like a stick of rock.
