Event description

Does your business have a Business Plan? If not then there is a risk that your business could just drift or you could fail to hit your objectives. A concise practical Business Plan can provide a platform to grow your business, allocate resources, establish priorities and provide something to measure progress against. In this workshop Darren will demonstrate how to create a practical Plan that can drive your business forward. 

Please note, this workshop will be held on Zoom. The online workshop format gives you the chance to fully participate in group discussion via video, ask questions throughout the session, learn from like minded business owners, and build connections. Our online workshops work in the same way as our standard events, with a limited number of attendees, and an expert Delivery Partner leading the session, to ensure you’re able to receive personalised support.
