Helm – Business Blueprint Workshop

Helm Business Blueprint Workshop on 1 November, London

The inscription above the entrance to a meeting venue in Regent Street, London, read, “No minute gone comes ever back again, take heed and see ye nothing do in vain”.
 
Time spent on factors you have no control over is a fool’s habit, as is time spent in the engine room of your business wrapped up in daily, weekly, and monthly operational activities. Growth needs time and attention, and releasing your time and attention comes from the underlying business model you build to take your business to market and grow it. It was the job we set out to achieve with 18 business leaders and founders over an intense 3-hour work session. I thoroughly enjoyed working with this dynamic group to clarify thoughts on what they want to achieve in the next 3-5 years, along with a business model blueprint to succeed in getting that job done.

Minet: Full day leadership workshop

Minet – co-ordinating and harnessing the power of a multi-location business

Minet is one of the biggest insurance providers across English speaking Africa with offices in 9 countries. This workshop brought together the leadership teams from each country office as well as the global leadership team to identify key strategic interventions that will drive each region, as well as the group, in the next year and beyond.

It was a full, busy day  which started by entrenching a mindset for growth, and then took a very practical approach through a workshop format, to setting country and global actions. The final step was to ensure ‘talk turns to walk’ and a robust discussion on the implementation process for these goals and actions, ensures the teams will be accountable, and deliver on the initiatives unearthed in the session.

Business Battleplans: Southern African Roadshow

In October 2023 I presented and facilitated Business Battleplan workshops in Namibia and South Africa for established business owners looking to lock and load their businesses for 2024.

It was the first time Aurik Windhoek hosted an event and they filled the venue beyond capacity. 52 business owners representing N$3.9bn in annual revenues undertook the tough work of identifying the gaps in their businesses, and the actions they need to take to fill them. In Johannesburg, this is a more established event and this edition drew together 45 business owners representing R4.6bn in annual revenues to invest 3 hours working ON their businesses rather than  IN them.
