We regret that our Speaker, Ali Waters of Ali Waters associates, has been obliged to cancel her presentation on this occasion. We very much look forward to welcoming her on a future date.
Our Speaker is Jeremy Webb, from SatNav4Business, presenting: Planning without Implementation is merely dreaming!
As a lender, I saw plenty of customers with business plans, which had often been drawn up for them by an advisor, with a view to obtaining some form of borrowing. Hindsight suggests that most of those plans went into a bottom drawer once facilities were drawn, and did not see the light of day until a further plan was required!
You could argue that I am a gamekeeper turned poacher and, as someone who works with clients to help them produce a business plan, my number one rule is that the client makes all the decisions that go into creating the plan. I will show them alternatives but it needs to be their plan and not mine!
We all know that whatever passes for Business as Usual can be hard enough without trying to implement change, but unless you can implement the changes needed to make different or better progress in accordance with your business plan, it becomes no more than a dream sheet!
This session will focus on some common planning targets that a business may choose, and encourages discussion between the attendees on those areas where they have achieved greatest success or perhaps encountered most difficulty.
Jeremy Webb has been a Chamber Director since 2015 and was President in 2019-20. He is a Business Growth Advisor & Mentor, specialising in Finance & Operations. Two passions are Start-Ups & Exit Strategy.
