About this event

In this workshop you will discover why it is essential to be able to accurately measure and reliably report how well critical parts of your business are working. The practical skills you gain can be easily applied back into your workplace to drive business improvement.

If you want your business to thrive in 2023 and beyond, then this workshop is for you! Working with experienced business consultants, this half day workshop will give you some of the tools you need to guide your business through the current economic headwinds and come out stronger on the other side.

This ‘stand-alone’ workshop is also the third of a series of six half-day workshops that will help you to transform the performance of your business. You will take a step back with business experts to review your business and decide what is needed to enhance its performance and market standing at a time when your customer needs are rapidly evolving and changing.

This 4-hour workshop will show you in simple practical steps how to set up and introduce a highly effective business monitoring and reporting system that will shine a spotlight on critically important areas of your business. The workshop will look at:

– What data to collect and how often

This workshop is ideal for leaders and managers of small businesses. It will be particularly useful for businesses that have recently started to trade and those with aspirations to grow or who want to make improvements to enhance their business resilience.
