A business owner has to know about everything from finances to marketing, HR issues to how to run their IT system; and that’s before we get to what the business actually does operationally! We wanted to provide some practical workshops to de-mystify these business issues and provide hints and tips that business owners can easily take back into their business. We will therefore be running a number of Free Workshops entitled “Running your Business”.
Each Workshop will start at 4pm with a chance for attendees to mingle over a cup of coffee/tea, or a glass of wine. At 4.30pm we will start the Workshop, with a range of experts in their field who will help and guide us through the issues surrounding that Workshop’s topic. We will leave plenty of time for a Questions & Answers session; and then we will finish the Workshop at 5.30pm with a glass of wine and a few sarnies.
We believe these Workshops will provide real value to our clients and non-clients; and so we would encourage our clients to bring along their colleagues, business associates, suppliers and customers.
Here are details of the first two Free Workshops, which are taking place at The Pinewood Hotel, Handforth:
Wednesday 12th September 4pm – 6pm
Employees – Assets or Liabilities? – We will hear from Charlotte Dean, MD of HR Consultancy P3PM, who will consider the life-cycle of an employee. Charlotte will cover issues including how do you: recruit the right people; manage your expectations that they are not a mini-you; engage, motivate, manage and retain them; and how do you manage their exit if they aren’t the right fit.
Wednesday 21st November 4pm – 6pm
Managing your Customers – At this session we will hear from a panel of speakers who will explore the customer life-cycle: how a business can ensure that they have the customers they want by undertaking the right due diligence; how they should nurture their customers to secure more business from them; and how they can ensure that their customers pay them! The speakers are:
- Andrew & Jackie Ford, Directors of Castletons Accountants
- Catherine Mackenzie, Director of Mackenzie Marketing
- James Wall, Commercial Partner, Kuits Solicitors
