A business plan helps you to:

  • clarify your business idea
  • spot potential problems

(You’ll need a business plan if you want to secure funding, investment or business).

Managing and Developing Events                                          

Properly Managed events are good for your business, covering everything from fund raising, exchanging ideas, and of course your statutory obligations in terms of such things as Annual General Meetings. We’ve managed every conceivable type of event, from small meetings, International Conferences, Exhibitions and Trade Shows, Training Programmes, Annual General Meetings, in fact everything up to and including the Ryder Cup !

Our Event Planning Process includes, Consultation, Strategy and Planning where required budgeting, scheduling, site selection, acquiring necessary permits, coordinating transportation and parking, arranging for speakers or entertainers, arranging decor, event security, catering, coordinating with third party vendors, and emergency plans.

Many, charitable organisations, and interest groups hold events in order to market themselves, build business relationships, raise money, or celebrate achievement.

Change Management                                                             

Every Organisation and the people within it, has to change with the times and with its ever changing position within its community. The challenge is to manage change effectively, showing it as a force for positive business and individual growth and development. And of course not to scare the living daylights out of everyone by disguising organisational change as threats to individual well-being, which can lead to some rather undesirable behaviour that could harm your organisation !!

We will work with you to assess how the process of change complements your business strategy going forward, showing you how to achieve your objectives and how to engage your people as partners in your success

Bespoke Learning Programmes

Research                                                                                        

We offer a research service to support your business and social objectives and to support your business strategy and planning. Quality Research is important in supporting decisions and in avoiding pitfalls, as it provides the evidence you need to make the right choices in the interest of both your organisation and your service users.
