What is Big Bear Learning? 

We are here to help other business people just like you. We run a successful Meetup and also have loads of articles from experts in their field. 

Expert Speakers

We have expert speaker s at each of our events, full of useful information to help supercharge your business. And the best bit 99% of what we do is totally FREE!

Big Bear Learning is a community group and educational resource founded by Dave Sheppard, Emma Sheppard and Lenka Koppova.

Our aim is simple. To empower others making their first steps into business and to nurture those who have already made the leap. We also want to support anyone who is willing to learn and better their own business skills and knowledge.  All of our contributors kindly provide their expertise free of charge as they feel it’s a great opportunity to give back to others in the business world.  We feel that by supporting those around us, empowering those who need it and giving advice where we can, that we as a collective can help make a difference to others in the world.


Coming soon . . .  We are going to be organising and running a series of workshops to allow you to add to your business knowledge.  From zero to hero there will be something here for everyone.
