This one-day workshop is for new businesses a year or so into their existence who want to develop further their essential systems for success. We look at what you hoped for when you started, and where you are now. We focus on the main business activities – from marketing to pricing – that will guide you in the near future towards growth and greater achievement.
The course will include:
- How to plan effectively for your business
- A review of your marketing strategy
- A look at what makes a profitable business
- How to innovate and maintain a competitive edge
- A chance to network with other new business owners
By the end of the workshop, you’ll develop an understanding of how you can acquire more customers, and how you can increase your profitability. You’ll have the opportunity to revisit your business and marketing plans, and if you’ve never had time to develop any plans in the first place, you’ll also learn how to plan effectively. You’ll test out some tools which can help to generate new ideas and manage the process of innovation in your businesses.
