Hounslow business programme: Innovate & Grow

Webinars coming up:

"It was informative and Lisa Rides really did well with organisation and reminders"

- Eddie Asare, KM door 2 door

Fit to Bid: Branduin Business Support 

Business Model Canvas - Innovation & Strategy

Tuesday 25th May 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Book Here

Having successfully delivered this webinar as an interactive Business Sprint to several audiences over the past 5 years, we have had tremendous positive feedback to our approach. SMEs find the Business Model Canvas very useful to develop a strategy to adapt or launch new products and services, and improve their state of preparedness prior to bid submission.


We will help you develop a graphical, 1-page framework that allows an SME to design, describe and/or challenge their business model prior to bidding for contracts.


The individual elements prompt consideration of the full scope of a business, while the layout encourages thought about how the pieces fit together across nine essential components.

Assessing the team’s mental health. Having worked from home for over the past 12 months, re-entry into the office world could cause problems for some. We are adaptable, but we must not underestimate the effect that the pandemic has had on us.  Existing problems have only been exacerbated, especially for younger people, who have not been able to socialise for over a year. 

Keeping communication channels open, setting regular times to meet with the team, either via Zoom or Teams, or even the telephone for one to ones. Share screen is an invaluable tool for working on joint documents.


When offices begin to re-open, asses to see if hybrid working is possible. Listen to the concerns of employees but encourage them to return in part. Much peer group learning is lost working from home.
