This FREE workshop for small business owners and start-ups will give you the know-how to build a business plan that sets you up for success.
Business owners often wonder if they really need to write a business plan, particularly if they’re not seeking a bank loan. However, if you want to clarify your thinking, set a tone and direction for your business, and a deeper understanding of your market, the answer is certainly ‘yes you do’.

Who it's for
Anyone who is:

- in the early stages of starting their business
- needs to secure external funding
- already has a business but wants to develop a plan to clarify their thinking and look for new opportunities.

No previous business knowledge is required to attend this workshop.

Program
This workshop covers the following topics:

- what should be included in your plan and why;
- how a marketing plan fits into your business plan;
- why you need a financial strategy; and,
- how a SWOT analysis will help you identify your business opportunities.

You'll receive a practical workbook, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
