Business Growth Workshop

Planning your business growth, for success

Your business is growing! What once was a small operation of 3 people has expanded to over 20. With that can come some adjustments to ensure your business can keep up.

If you were once on the tools and now find yourself in the office needing to manage staff, liaise with new clients and keep the supply chain going, this workshop is ideal for you. How can you keep your finger on the pulse? What staff do you need? Who will recruit them? Who will manage them ?

There are so many questions. When you only have 8 hours in a day, let us help you find focus.
