What is Business Fundamentals?
Too many businesses try to run before they can walk. Taught in a series of intensive one-day workshops, Business Fundamentals is designed to stop you in your tracks – and get you back to business basics.
Specifically, it’s about getting those basics right.
We don’t skim over things. The one-day format allows time to teach in depth – and to ensure you learn from being immersed in an educational experience.
The series is split into dedicated workshops that each concentrate on a specific area of business:
- Operations Fundamentals
Focusing on the day-to-day essentials, the Operations Fundamentals Workshop will help you maximise the value of your assets and secure the income and value of your business.
- Finance Fundamentals
Our Finance Fundamentals Workshop will help you advance your learning on critical numbers and scoreboards – and how they fit together. We’ll help you keep better track of your cashflow by understanding the basics of effective financial management – like how to read your financial statements and how cash flow cycles work.
- Marketing Fundamentals
Our Marketing Fundamentals Workshop will show you how to define the uniqueness that sets you apart from your competitors. You’ll learn how to compose this message in a way that will attract the customers within your allowable budgets.
- Sales Fundamentals
You’ll discover how to hear “yes” more often – and how to turn a “no” into a “yes”. We’ll explain how to create a steady stream of work with your preferred future clients.
- Customer Loyalty Fundamentals
Discover the importance of repeat custom to your business’s success. We’ll help you build the skills that will keep customers coming back – time and time again.
- Team Fundamentals
In our Team Fundamentals Workshop, you’ll learn how to be an inspiring, effective and accountable leader. We’ll show you how to recruit a team that’s so inspired, effective and accountable, it could run the business itself.
