Business planning intensive: Strategies to accelerate growth

18 Jun 2019 9:30am

You’ve worked hard to get your business up and running. Now take time out from working in your business and instead step back to work on your business, sharpen your focus and put yourself on a clear path towards future growth. 

Join a small group of like-minded business operators to ready your business for what’s next in a dynamic and innovative environment with a focus on problem solving and strategy development. 

In sessions totaling 16 hours, followed up by five hours of one-on-one mentoring, be guided by a small business expert with practical know-how and lots of insight to share that will give your business a shot in the arm. 

Identify where your business is at now, where you’d like to be in future, and exactly how you’ll get there. Learn how to build strong leadership, engage employees and how to generate high customer satisfaction. 

Work through real-life, gold-standard examples, templates tailored to your business and walk away with a definite plan to put into action that will recharge your business. 

Set clear goals and objectives to accelerate your business into the future at this Small Business Victoria workshop intensive, one of many that have helped businesses get started in Victoria for over 10 years. 

This is a great opportunity for owners to refocuss on their businesses that are older than 2 years old.

Learn how to: 

  • Maximise problem solving and development tools 
  • Take a complete snapshot of your business 
  • Review your activities against gold standard 
  • Identify key issues and opportunities 
  • Improve your skills as a business leader 
  • Develop a simple, effective strategy for growth 
  • Build a one-page business plan and achievable timelines 
  • Access tools, templates, support and resources in future


"As a small business owner, it is always hard to find time to work on my business.  This course has given me the opportunity to step out of my business for a couple of days to do just that.  The facilitator Michael is incredibly knowledgeable and has provided some awesome insights as well as pushing us to think outside the square.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is either new to business or been in it a few years and need some assistance to go to the next stage."
