On the 8th February Know+Do started its fifth Inspiring Business Leaders programme in collaboration with Tech Manchester at UKFast’s Manchester campus. Aimed at providing local SME’s with an opportunity to review and reflect on key areas of their business. Previous participants have told us that its useful to be reminded of the things you know you should review but you can easily ignore because you’re too busy.
The programme is being run over 4 half-day sessions and spaces are available for the remaining seminars:
Session 1 covered the Mission, vision and values of the business.
Session 2 Is a review of Leadership and Management in the business. (22nd February)
Session 3 Is concerned with growing the business and understanding the numbers. (8th March)
Session 4 Will focus on successful Marketing and Sales. (22nd March)
The sessions are all delivered in a PowerPoint free environment and encourage an opportunity for business owners and leaders to explore, reflect, and share ideas and experiences whilst also thinking through new opportunities for their businesses.
We had a great selection of businesses from new start-ups to established businesses employing up to 50+ people. Whatever the stage a business is at there are problems and opportunities. Many times when we’re caught in the day to day running of the business it’s easy not to build enough proper reflective time into exploring these problems and opportunities normally until the problem demands our attention or we’ve missed the opportunity.
Know+Do offer the programme free of charge to qualifying local businesses as a way of giving back to support SMEs to grow. This also expresses one of our core business values of Sharing Knowledge. It can be difficult for many businesses just starting out and we believe that a little bit of planned time out to reflect and review can help to make better decisions and more profitable businesses and that’s good for all of us.
