The Get Growing Programme

The quickest, most creative and practical way to plan for growth

Get Growing is a series of 3 unique business growth workshops designed to get your business growing. The programme is perfect for small businesses, start-ups, entrepreneurs or larger businesses that wish to revitalise their positioning and strategy. The workshops are themed around three critical business growth elements: Brand, Customer, Plan and each is packed with unique content that builds the essential thinking, strategy and ideas essential for sustainable growth. Each workshop is highly creative and practical, fast-paced and delegates will have access to business tools that they cannot find elsewhere. There will also be peer review within each workshop, so that delegates can collaborate and exchange ideas for mutual benefit.

BRAND: understand what your brand really stands for and the values that underpin it. Develop your unique brand story to create stand-out in your market, and to engage your customers and prospects at a deeper level for better marketing and customer retention.
CUSTOMER: analyse your customer types, both the customers you have and the customers you want. Develop a selling story that fits with your brand approach, is persuasive and helps prospects understand the true value of what you offer. Build an offer map to gain clarity around what you do and plot customer lifetime chains to grow customer value.
PLAN: create a compelling, robust vision for your business to give you momentum and clarity on your path to growth. Build an action plan by identifying all key actions from the sessions and integrating into a 12 month plan, giving you a week-by-week focus on the strategic actions required to build your business.
