So many entrepreneurs have a great business idea, a fantastic pitch and business plans that crumble under scrutiny. But it doesn’t have to be like this! This workshop is designed to allow you to break your business model and rebuild it into the confident and persuasive plan that you believe it should be.

The business model is the key to the success and failure of any ambitious business and any Start-Up or Scale-Up going for funding, sourcing suppliers or pitching contracts is going to have their business model tested. This practical workshop will focus on your business model, the business plan and the entire ecosystem that supports your ambitions. Through a very structured approach, you will be led through a process to uncover the hidden dangers, weakest links and soft spots in your plan – in a friendly, interactive and constructive manner.

Participants will learn how to:

– Rebuild a strong business plan

– Gain confidence ahead of any pitch

– Become stronger in defending their vision
