People & skills

Event description

It is essential that all aspects of your business are well organised and equipped with the necessary resources in order to run both a professional and profitable operation. This means putting in place: a Strategic Business Plan which clearly defines the business approach; a realistic, yet challenging Budget, on which performance can be measured; an HR strategy - people are a company`s greatest asset; a Marketing Plan which addresses the market, the needs of the client and the competition; a Production Process which ensures delivering a high quality product, at a competitive price in a timely manner; an IT system that works for the company and serves as a vital source of information to management to assist them in their decision making process. 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.

You will have exclusive access to Bruce`s expertise in these key areas and of course the opportunity to discuss this in the context of your own business and challenges.
