90 Day Planning for Business Owners

90 Day Planning for Business Owners
Event on 2017-06-30 08:30:00
GrowthCLUB is your 90 day planning workshop. We will inspire and assist you to build a step-by-step practical, relevant and tailor-made Action plan for the next 90 days, aimed at driving more profit into your business.  90 day Planning was born from the success of our flagship business coaching programs and is now available as a complete package to maximise your results. We are so confident you’ll get the results you’re looking for, we are prepared to put our money where our mouth is… “If you feel you are not getting more value than expected… we’ll refund 100% of your investment in the program!”  Who else will be there ? Several like-minded business owners who care passionately about their business and who want more profit, more time and more life. Some attendees are regular clients of ActionCOACH who are working with one of our Business Coaches. Some attendees regularly attend GrowthCLUB to focus on their business planning and ensure that they complete plans every quarter without fail. And some attendees will be at GrowthCLUB for the first time. Whatever stage you're at and whether you're a regular or just curious to check this out, you can be assured of a warm welcome.  Who should attend? GrowthCLUB is designed for Business owners and senior managers who will get the most benefit from the day, though anyone is welcome. Many business owners choose to bring one or two of their senior team. It often helps to bring along more than one person from a company, as it can make it easier to create plans on the day, and to hit the ground running back at the office when it comes to implementing the plans. It's your choice, come alone or with other staff.  Is this just for big businesses? GrowthCLUB is for just about any size of business, whether you're the business owner with no employees, or part of a large organisation with a large team – all sizes of business attend this event. In fact, the variety makes it more interesting, and good for extending our range of business contacts. Many of our attendees find commonality and end up selling to each other or collaborating in other ways, it's an added benefit.  Who runs the event? GrowthCLUB is an ActionCOACH event, run by certified Business Coach Alex Baba and support staff.  You will benefit from… Action strategies to increase your sales and profits right away Clear business goals and targets for the next 90 days Detailed action plan of how to achieve your goals Vision, focus and enthusiasm for the next 90 days New skills and tools to enable you to achieve more in less time Contacts with a group of like-minded business owners  The breakout sessions for June 2017 will be:    At each GrowthCLUB we provide a choice of 2-hour breakout sessions for those who have attended previously, while first-time attendees are encouraged to work through our 6-steps session and get started on the planning workbook:  Title: How to Build and use an effective, yet simple Financial Dashboard You're heading along a motorway at night when without your dashboard lights! You've been driving around like this for years, so not knowing your speed, fuel level, engine temp etc is ok because you 'know' your business. Sound familiar? Do you have a clear Financial Dashboard for your business with a Budget to act as your Sat Nav? Can you see instantly how much business you've done and at what profit margin? What you've spent and if you are making a profit or a loss…every month? Do you know what your cashflow position is? Do you know what is owed to you and is a robust collection process in place?  In this break out Alex will explain why we all need an effective, yet simple Financial Dashboard in our business and how to Build and use one!  Title 2: Making systemization easy (or at least straightforward!) Systemization is probably the most valuable change you can make to your business. Not only does it enable to operate more efficiently, iron out ‘hot spots’ in your service delivery, increase your teams flexibility, it also, ultimately, means that your business is both worth significantly more money and easier to sell. In this workshop, Alex explains how to systemise your business, where to start, how to engage your team members and what you do with your systems to ensure they remain both relevant and current to your business needs.  Title 3: 6-Steps to a Better Business For first timers to the ActionCOACH System, this is a good place to start. “The 6 Steps to Building a Profitable Business that Works Without the Owner” is a proven and progressive, step-by-step approach that identifies strategies for established businesses to leverage to the next level of growth and create consistent cash flow.  Investment: Your most significant investment will be a day of your time and we guarantee you'll find it worthwhile. You will receive a preparation pack to review and complete in advance of the event, and on the day you will receive a comprehensive 90-day planning pack. Tea, Coffee, juices and pastries are served on arrival and a meals are served at lunch break.  A charge of N25,000 per person is made for the full day workshop including all the planning materials, food and drinks. Further attendees from the same company are charged at half price, N12,500.  Attendees will be invoiced for payment just prior to the event.  Register now to book your spot as seats are limited.

People who are continuing to work part time or in the private sector will not be eligible.
