*In person* Business Planning – November 2021

November 9, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

man looking at business plans

The Business Planning workshop will introduce you to an invaluable planning tool, and help you to complete the process to fully understand your own business and its direction.

You’ll be taken through the completion of your own Business Model Canvas (BMC). It will give you insights into your customers and market, your value propositions, your channels and, of course, how to make enough money.

By completing a BMC, you’re halfway to a full-length business plan. You’ll leave this workshop with the skeleton of your business fully formed, and a full understanding of what comes next.


When is the Business Planning workshop?

This online workshop is being held on Tuesday 9th November, 10am-1pm.


What will I do?

This 3-hour workshop will introduce you to the Business Model Canvas, an invaluable planning tool, to help you sketch out the shape of your business.

We will guide you through a rigid planning process, to help you map your:

  • Key partners
  • Key activities
  • Key resources
  • Value propositions
  • Customer relationships
  • Customer segments
  • Channels
  • Cost structure
  • Revenue streams
