Your growth story - turning strategy into success

Wednesday 28 October. How to create a strategy that maps out how to achieve business success.

Your growth story. Turning strategy into success

It is essential that your business has a clear and compelling road map that outlines how you will get from where you are now to where you want to get to. Ideally, it may also address some of the unavoidable challenges that occur when you scale up a business at high speed.

It’s one thing having the ambition to go for growth, it’s quite another to create a simple strategy that maps out how this will be achieved. It’s fair to say that the more ambitious the strategy, the more it will be scrutinised and challenged by others including potential funders. They will understandably want to know that there is the optimum balance of market potential and measured risk plus a proven team that can execute on time and budget.

This session will be led by Steve Young, Director at Winning Pitch, and Scaleup Consultant.


Wednesday 28 October, 2 pm - 3:30 pm
