In this workshop you will learn about building systems to manage your business more effectively and using less of your precious time as the business evolves and grows. If you want to avoid the ‘Business Management Trap’ then this is the workshop for you.

If you want to build robust management systems that provide your business with a resilient foundation for growth, then this workshop is for you! Working with an experienced business consultant, this half day workshop will give you the tools to create an effective business management system that suits your business needs.

With the rise in energy prices and the cost-of-living crisis, managing your business and its money has never been more important. This ‘stand-alone’ workshop is also the fifth of a series of six half-day workshops that will help you to transform the performance of your business.

This 4-hour workshop will explore key approaches and systems that will help you to more effectively manage every aspect of your business. The workshop will look at:

• Business management

• Financial management and forecasting

• Commercial and Legal management

This workshop is ideal for leaders and managers of small businesses. It will be particularly useful for businesses that are interested in learning how to organise and structure their business management systems to get the most from their resources.

Participants will learn how to setup and streamline business management systems so that information is easily accessible, and time-wasting is avoided. Participants will review how they can be cost effective as well as understand any commercial and contractual obligations and how to manage these effectively.
