What’s the Plan for 2020?

03 Dec 2019

What does success for your business look like in 2020? How are you planning to get there?

Event date: Friday, 13 December 2019

What would you define as success for your business in 2020? If you don’t have a clear idea, how will you know when you’ve got there? More importantly, what actions do you need to undertake to make your goal a reality?

Successful businesses are built on solid plans. What better way to mark the new decade than to kick off your planning in a supportive and creative environment?

Our ‘What’s the Plan for 2020?’ masterclass will help you to explore the following:

  • What you consider to be the priorities for your business in 2020
  • How you’re going to get there through the six Ws of planning: What; Who; Why; When; Which and With What
  • What might get in your way and how can you mitigate those risks?
  • An opportunity to road test your ideas within a highly supportive environment of fellow business owners and managers.

Learning outcome

You will leave the session with tangible goals for your business for the year ahead as well as a high-level plan on achieving these goals.
