Planning for business growth
Who should attend?
This session is for existing business owners who have aspirations to grow their business.
It is so easy to be working hard ‘in’ our business, that we sometimes don’t stop and take time to work ‘on’ our business. This workshop creates some protected time for you to reflect on where you are now with your business, and where you would like to be in future. Then to start to develop a focused strategy to move your business in the right direction.
We will share some simple planning tools that you can use to identify what needs to change and how, without having to spend hours writing a traditional business plan.
You will leave with the knowledge and tools to be able to build a business growth strategy and where applicable, to communicate the shape of the plan simply to others.
It is sometimes easier to develop a plan than to actually implement and stick to one, so we discuss methods that may be helpful for keeping yourself on track.
If after attending you feel you would benefit from 121 support with the onward development of your plan then this can be arranged.
