Growing Your Business in 2017: Strategic Planning Workshop (North East)
Thu, 8 Jun 2017, 09:00 – Fri, 9 Jun 2017, 17:30 BST
Are you a small to medium sized business?
Do you have an ambition to...
Develop new products or services?
Improve existing processes or investigate new market opportunities?
YES! Then this fully funded 2 day workshop can help you.
Our workshop will help you to redefine your business proposition by highlighting barriers to growth and identifying opportunities for change. By the end of the workshop you will have developed a tailored Action Plan for your organisation which will plot activity for the coming financial year and provide an internal assessment of company strengths or areas for development.
How it works?
Day 1 (8th June): An experienced RTC adviser will guide you through a Business Model Canvas, a visual strategic management tool that will help you to map, discuss, design and invent new business models by defining your business activities on one page. On completion, your bespoke canvas will identify opportunities for growth and help you to respond to changing market conditions.
Day 2 (9th June): Using the information collected during day one, we will work with you to investigate your “value proposition” further in order to understand your customers’ needs and design the products and services they want.
Delegates can also benefit from a 1:1 surgery with an experienced RTC adviser focusing on: Access to Finance, Intellectual Property, Business Strategy, Internationalisation, Product to Market Alignment, Supply Chain Efficiency, Marketing & Sales or Organisational Development
