Description

How are you going to get there?

No…really… how are you going to get there?

You are the driver of the bus.

You’re the leader of your business which means you’re responsible for the destination, the route plan, who you allow onto the bus, whether you change direction if the road gets bumpy…. It’s a big responsibility.

Is the destination you set at the start of your business, still the destination you have in mind now?Or are you trying to arrive somewhere different, but haven’t got the route plan quite figured out. How are you going to get there? You might wake in the night pondering this very question. You’re excited to be on the journey and the destination is a place which you’re determined to arrive at. But the sat nav is playing up and you need some guidance. If this sounds like where you’re at in your business, don’t worry, this event is designed for you.


Join us for this interactive business growth strategy workshop, designed to give you the tools to realise your ambitions for growth and the opportunity to answer some key strategic questions such as:

  • What is our vision for the future?
  • How will we choose the products, services and markets that will give us the growth?
  • What are the priority initiatives needed to make the vision a reality?

At this hands-on workshop, all delegates will be provided with a workbook and be taken through a series of practical exercises to build a platform for change. To make this a highly interactive workshop, places are limited to just 10 business leaders.


What will the session cover?

Vision and Values – we will provide some guiding principles and exercises which you will find useful to:

  • Formulate or clarify your vision for the future
  • Uncover the values which are fundamental to you as a business leader
  • Engage with your team and develop shared ownership of the growth strategy

Developing a strategy for growth – you'll be provided with tools to help you build your strategy based on critical factors, both external to your business and internal. We will show you how to:

  • Explore markets and product mix
  • Develop competitive advantage
  • Maximise revenue and profit generation

The great thing is that you will be building your own strategy, but you will be doing it surrounded by like-minded people, in a supportive environment, using proven techniques and real-life experience.

Projects and initiatives to implement your strategy - we will share techniques for selecting the most effective initiatives to work on, and in which order. Walking through success frameworks for:

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Operations
  • Finance
  • People and Leadership


How will this benefit you and your business?

With just half a day to cover all of this big thinking, we're not going to be able to implement anything immediately, but once you leave the session, you will need to apply the knowledge and tools to make your plan a reality. Benefits include:

  • Having the time and space to reflect on your business and visualise the future
  • Being guided through a structured process with a set of clear steps and detailed workbook
  • Working on questions relevant to your own business in a hands-on and participative workshop
  • Learning new and effective techniques
  • Setting out priority initiatives to realise your aspirational vision
