Out with the old and in with the new. No one wants to wish time away, but 2020 is a year most of us will be pleased to see the back of. A year of disruption change and uncertainty that forced many business owners to put plans for growth on hold and focus instead on survival.
The challenges of the last 10-months or so have pushed even successful businesses to the brink – and beyond, but for those who navigated their way through, it’s now time to look to the future.
By spring, the worst of the pandemic will hopefully be over, and although trading is likely to remain tough, 2021 will be an opportunity to recover and rebuild – for the ambitious, even to grow and expand. Investing time to improve your business skills has always been vital, but never more so than right now.
Our 2021 workshop programme covers all the core areas essential to running a successful, sustainable and profitable business. Book on and learn how to build a winning marketing plan, how to use social media to get more clients and sales, how to understand your business numbers, how to optimise your revenue – and much more besides.
Our workshops are just one of the ways we help our clients beat the odds of reaching their 5th birthday by 185% compared with the national average. They’re open for anyone to book and are available at NO CHARGE to Inca Clients and invited guests.
While COVID restrictions remain in place, we will continue to deliver our workshops online over Zoom. However, as soon as they’re lifted and it’s safe to do so, we will revert to our usual face to face format.
