Business Planning Workshop

This free initial workshop provides executive advice and dependable data to help you assess the impacts of changing markets, revenue forecasts and government policy on your business planning. It is the linchpin that binds the Forging Ahead program together and as such is considered a critical component for all participants.

Step 1.
A simple, online and time-efficient questionnaire to help you pinpoint your business risks and issues over the next three months and beyond. Once you have completed the questionnaire, you will receive a one-page Business Performance Indicator Report that summarises your position. Using data analytics to extract vital information, the report will highlight areas of risk that need focus to improve business performance.

Step 2.
An online workshop that will walk you through developing your SWOT Analysis and Business Action Plan based on insights from the Business Performance Indicator Report. This action plan will provide you with clear steps and priorities to manage your cashflow and business over the coming months as your business forges ahead.

You will walk away from this workshop with a clear plan of action, a timeline and an outline of the resources you’ll need to be successful.
