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.

This online workshop is being held on Tuesday 1st December, 10am-1pm.


What will I do?

  • Value propositions
  • Customer relationships
