The Business Growth Package

The most comprehensive business growth workshop for your business

Over fifteen years of helping businesses grow, we have designed and refined our tool box of business growth tools and for the first time have brought them altogether in a comprehensive Business Growth Package. Our tools are proven to help business owners plan, think creatively and map a path to growth in the shortest time possible. We offer the Business Growth Package in a two day format and we focus on five essential foundation stones you need to create, build and sustain growth:

  • Your Brand Story: create an engaging, original brand story that stands you apart from your competitors, engages prospects at a deeper level and allows customers to not only be part of your story but to retell it to others to create new brand fans.
  • Your Offering: define your offering in a clear, concise map that prospects and customers will understand and will enable you to plan your selling story and how you increase customer spend in a coherent, logical way.
  • Customer Analysis: use our tools to create and analyse your customer types, enabling you to plan business activity including sales, marketing and business development that is hyper-bespoke and resonates more deeply with your customers.
  • Your Business Vision: a plan for growth must start with a vision for where the business will be in 2, 3 or 5 years’ time. Use our creative vision tools to create a compelling, technicolour vision that will ensure all your staff focus momentum in one direction and engage fully with the business strategy.
  • Your Business Plan: once the above four foundation stones are in place, we help you create a business plan for the short, medium and long term. The plan is clear, detailed and will ensure you and your teams have clear sight of all required actions, resources and budget, as well as enabling you to measure progress quickly and adapt as required.

The Business Growth Package will be the most valuable investment you can make in your business this year.

Who's it for?

  • Start up businesses who want to get it right first time and put the thinking and plans in place to really boost your chances of success.
  • Existing businesses that need to grow.
  • Existing businesses that want to create a change or re-focus to enable future growth and success.
