Description

If you are thinking of starting your own business there are some fundamental points you need to consider before taking the plunge:

  • Starting with the end in mind – knowing yourself and the fundamentals of running a business. Before you throw in the day job – consider some fundamental questions that will help you assess whether self-employment is right for you.

  • Building a stable business base to ensure your business can grow. Businesses need to address certain key factors to be successful.

  • Understanding the key growth levers. Whether you just want to earn a living or become the next Mark Zuckerberg it’s worth understanding what factors will drive your business growth.

Bio: Chris Lorimer is one of the South West’s best know business consultants, working with multiple businesses of all shapes and sizes, helping them to become more successful. Chris helps entrepreneurs see the wood through the trees, coaching them to address business fundamentals. He has had a successful business career as a senior Director for Barclays, runs a number of successful businesses, including South West Growth Service, a business consultancy for aspirational and fast growing businesses. He lives near Exeter with his family where they run a business venue called Devon Business & Education Centre.

"Chris came into our business as a coach during a challenging time and managed to instantly grasp the key elements of all the issues. His sharp business mind readily sees solutions to problems that others cannot. He is both calm and challenging and over the course of several weeks he managed to achieve positive, lasting changes in our business that I am sure without him may never have happened! For us, he has truly been a catalyst for change and I cannot recommend him highly enough." Ella Tyler, Mountlands Lnaguage School
