Do you own, lead or manage an SME? Do you play a role in making key decisions about the future direction your business takes? Would you like to know more about approaches to planning and modelling that will help you make assured strategic decisions to leverage growth? If you would, this business-critical session is a must.

The chances are that wherever you are in your business’ lifecycle right now, you’ll be juggling a complex range of ideas, resources, activities and options as you formulate plans to ready your business for both the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

Sound planning should be at the heart of every business - whether you are starting a completely new venture, or looking at ways to grow an existing one. The road ahead can be strewn with complications and pitfalls, these tools have been developed over the last decade, which enable you to make sense of this complexity and proceed in a straightforward and disciplined way. The Business Model Canvas (BMC) is one such tool and perhaps the most powerful and accessible. It can help you discover if your product or service is aligned with what customers value and need, before significant investment of your hard earned cash and resources.

This valuable session aims to take you through BMC and shows you how to harness its power to sharpen your decision-making.
