Description

There's a unique opportunity to experience the Academy for Chief Executives at an inspirational session in West Berkshire on Tuesday 17 October 2017 with Neil Laughton presenting his Strategy MOT workshop while also engaging in an afternoon peer group board session with other leaders like you.

Jim Odell, Chairman of groups based in Berkshire and Cornwall would like to invite you to organise an initial 15 minute telephone call with him to explore more, with a view to you attending (at no cost) if there's a potential fit both ways. Please contact Jim’s PA, Sue, to arrange a convenient date and time to talk.

More about the meeting:

The objective of the meeting is to give you an insight into how membership works and the benefits it brings to you and your business. You'd get a taste of what life is like being an Academy member, all distilled into a day session..


Strategy MOT workshop - Neil Laughton

Most business leaders or senior managers have written or have been asked to follow a business, strategy or executive plan. But in his experience (35 years of employment, self-employment and advisory) the majority of these plans have been far too long winded, complicated and lacked an action or accountability plan.

A few years ago, Neil was running a successful £40 million turnover business based in London and a large FTSE 100 bought his company. A week later, the new owners of the business sent out a two hundred and ninety four page strategy document to all members of staff. 294 pages!! Needless to say, not many of his former work colleagues had the time, let alone the inclination to read it from cover to cover.

What exactly is Strategy?

There are many answers and of course it can mean different things to different people. The dictionary definition is “A plan for obtaining a specific major result.” This is very different to having a specific major goal, vision or mission. Strategy is all about the development and execution of the plan to enable you to obtain your goal, vision or mission! Great leadership is about creating a compelling and inspirational picture of the future whatever the circumstances and helping others to contribute to the successful implementation of this vision. Therefore it is vitally important that the strategic plan is clear, simple and adaptable.

During this Strategy MOT workshop, I will be introducing you to Strategy on a Page, explaining how it works and encouraging you to apply your own strategies in order to help you grow your business. This workbook is designed to help you get your ideas and thoughts onto paper before committing them to the page.

To experience the peer group first-hand and what it delivers, attendees come along with a genuine business challenge and see how a variety of opinions, experiences and different perspectives can really impact on your decision making, direction and growth.


You will also participate in The Board You'd Love to Afford ®, a confidential peer group board session where you will have the opportunity to seek advice on a challenge, opportunity or dilemma from other leaders. If you have any queries about the event or Academy for Chief Executives, please contact me via return email and I will call you at a date and time convenient to you.

It will be a really interactive day and I know that your contribution would be very welcome. Looking forward to meeting you.

Kind regards,

Jim Odell
