Workshop | Create a Simple, yet Powerful One Page Strategic Plan!
As a business owner, your time should be spent working ON your business, building your vision and creating and executing a plan that will get you there.  Every owner has a vision, but who has time to articulate their 5 - 10 year vision, let alone create a plan around it?

In this workshop you will leave with a simple yet powerful one-page business plan, and a 90 day action sheet!  How powerful is that?
Attendees will learn:
  • Why is Strategic Planning important?
  • Why being proactive and strategic can make a huge difference in any organization!
  • This isn't just learning, it's doing.  Leave with a powerful yet simple one-page business plan
  •  How do you follow through on Strategic Planning and ensure a one-time event becomes a powerful year-round guide for your company?
  • How strategic thinking, planning, and implementation of powerful goals, priorities, key initiatives and strategies can change the way your company performs!
  • Take away the road map you need to generate a "Thriving" Business.
