Strategic Breakthrough – Consulting Session

If you’ve been working hard but feeling worn out, and worried about what 2012 will bring, then I know how you feel and I’d like to help you create a MAJOR  STRATEGIC BREAKTHROUGH.

Better results with less!!!

  • Less resource
  • Less waste
  • Less time

…is the only way businesses will thrive in this new economy.

I've also heard from a lot of business owners and professional people who are having an especially difficult time getting enough clients.

After hearing about so many businesses not feeling hopeful about 2012, I've decided to do something about it…
I’d like to invite you to take advantage of a special, “Strategic Breakthrough” consulting session  where we’ll work together to…

  1. Create a crystal clear vision for your ‘ultimate business outcome’ and the “ideal clients” you’d like your marketing to attract for you.
  2. Uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging the growth of your business and preventing you attracting your ideal customers and clients.
  3. Help you see the opportunities and take away some simple actions to move your business toward your goals.
  4. You'll leave this session renewed, re-energized, and inspired to turn your business into a  more profitable, more sustainable operation that is fun to own and work in…  And your team will be more engaged and more productive because of it.

I've helped more than 117 businesses turn around and start generating the revenue they want I know I can help you do that too.

Understand the Sustainability Opportunity in Your Business

What is sustainability and why should businesses care?  This introductory workshop examines the ways in which your business or department can benefit from introducing sustainable practices. It will answer the critical questions of who cares, who benefits, and how can we get people on board?  You will identify areas you wish to target and identify the steps you need to take to introduce sustainable practices to your business/department. By the end of this course you will have a much greater understanding the concept of sustainability and why it is important for all businesses.

This workshop is essential to understanding how the increasing pressure to be 'sustainable' will impact your business AND how you can make it work FOR YOU, YOUR CUSTOMERS, YOUR BUSINESS!  As Sir Richard Branson said "it is the white space of opportunity for business."

As entrepreneurs or business owners it is up to us to look for this opportunity to be better. If you want a brighter future here’s what I suggest you do:

Stop being busy! (I can help with this), slow down and start noticing and asking questions.  Not what the media is telling us to notice, rather what trends are emerging.  What big issues do we see in world?  Is there any connection between these issues and our business?  If so what is the connection?  Are we part of the trend, are we adding to the problem?

Does this trend or issue create an opportunity to be better?  If we took action on this trend/issue how would that improve our reputation with our customers, increase our market share, allow us to offer higher quality, grow our business to be more profitable?

If the answer is “I’d like to know” or even only “maybe it would”, then I believe you owe it to yourself, your partner, your kids to explore this opportunity.  If you don’t, someone else will and you’ll keep going where you’re headed.

So if you’re intent on growing and want to find out what the most significant trend in business means for your business  … it’s possible you can get some financial support from the government. Visit the Accelerate Success website for details on this or or email me today.

Do it now and do it your way before regulation forces you. Email bridget@creatingwhatmatters.co.nz, get ahead of your competition and get the benefits!
