How our business workshops support you

Our workshops are facilitated by experienced coaches who have learnt the lessons the hard way – in the school of real, practical business. The programme consists of 12, monthly sessions that provide a business owner and / or key team members with a complete understanding of core business disciplines.

Each participant will have their own business plan workbook to use and complete throughout the business workshop programme. We also provide a range of spreadsheet templates to aid the programme.

Our small business workshop includes a dedicated one-to-one coaching session mid-month to help keep you on track and grow your business outside of our half-day ‘Mini MBA’ sessions.

A workshop will have up to 10 non competing businesses and will involve presentation, group discussion, and both individual and group working.

Key to success is the “homework”, with an expectation that attendees will begin to put the principles discussed at the workshops into practice between sessions.

Each new workshop offers an opportunity for the sharing of experiences, successes and challenges from putting principle into practice.

"The templates are a phenomenal asset. Something I’ll definitely be taking away along with some key theories/principles in particular areas (e.g. leadership). The segmented sessions were very helpful as they allowed me to keep the focus and get stuck in each time. The follow-up session in between keeps you accountable."
Paige Kennard
"Our delegates typically find that during the programme they see a marked increase in revenue, growth and confidence“
