Event description

Managing a business, whether in the capacity as owner or as a senior employee, provides a wide range of challenges. To ensure that a business is both efficient and profitable there are a number of basic, yet critical elements, that need to be addressed in a well thought out and strategic way. Amongst others these include : budget preparation, marketing planning, market & client analysis, human resources, systems and where applicable, having a top quality production facility in place. This perhaps all sounds very obvious and simple - in reality it is quite different. In this session you will have the opportunity to share Bruce’s experience and to discuss the most pressing points that you have in mind and which you feel are impacting or could impact your current business model.

Please note, this 1-2-1 will be held on Zoom. This digital 1-2-1 gives you the chance to speak to one of our expert Delivery Partners via video-link. You’ll be able to ask your questions directly to them, and get the tailored answers you need to make a real difference in your business. Over the course of your 1-2-1 session, you’ll be able to fast-track your knowledge, all without leaving your desk.
