Business Planning Seminar

Failing to plan is planning to fail

All too often I see business plans that are focussed on business growth and marketing. However, this is only part of your overall plan, and sometimes a very small part! The reason that this happens though is that it is easy for smooth talking consultants to make the process “sexy” by talking up the marketing plans; but it is also near impossible to hold them accountable for the plan failing.

A business plan is so much more than a document to impress your financiers or business partners. In its simplest form, a business plan is a guide—a roadmap for your business that outlines goals and details how you plan to achieve those goals.

The chances of success increase dramatically when you plan in advance!

I believe that the plan, and the team preparing it, needs to be accountable. The plan needs to be very clear on the steps required and the outcomes expected so that you can constantly measure your progress and keep revising where required.

At the end of every month, quarter, year, you should be able to measure each outcome you planned to achieve against your actual results. A well thought out plan should not leave you surprised about your results but should align to reinforce that your plan was spot on!

If you do not have a measurable plan in place with your business you need to attend this free seminar!
