Often business owners don’t have a documented business plan and or don’t refresh their business plan when they pivot or make strategic changes in their business. By joining this workshop, business owners and leaders will learn how to write a well thought out plan.
This workshop will cover the following benefits of writing a business plan including definitions and questions to help draw out the answers for participants:
- Clarity of Vision: A well-structured business plan helps the owner define and refine their business goals, mission, and vision, providing a clear direction for the company’s growth.
- Strategic Decision Making: It serves as a roadmap, guiding the owner in making informed decisions about resource allocation, market strategies, and operational priorities.
- Attracting Investors and Funding: A comprehensive business plan enhances the chances of attracting investors and securing funding by showcasing the business’s potential and growth prospects.
- Risk Management: The planning process allows business owners to identify potential risks and challenges, enabling them to develop contingency plans and mitigate potential issues.
- Resource Allocation: It helps in allocating resources efficiently, including finances, manpower, and time, to optimize business performance.
- Measuring Progress: Business plans provide a benchmark for measuring the company’s progress and success over time, helping to identify areas for improvement.
- Team Alignment: A well-communicated business plan aligns employees with the company’s objectives and fosters a sense of purpose and unity among the team.
- Marketing and Sales Strategy: It outlines the marketing and sales approach, target audience, and competitive positioning, helping to achieve growth and market penetration.
- Long-Term Sustainability: By outlining long-term goals and strategies, a business plan promotes sustainability and helps the company adapt to changing market conditions.
This workshop will also highlight what government funded coaching and mentoring opportunities are available to business owners through the Self Employment Assistance Program and Prestige Staffing Solutions.
While all are welcome to attend, the ideal audience for this session is business owners new to business planning, seasoned business owners who don’t have one, business owners pivoting in their business direction and or those seeking investment or finance.
