A business guru is staging a free workshop to help owners make the transformation from setting up a business to leading it successfully.
Expert consultant Chris Gough, of CGR Business Solutions Ltd, will take business owners through some of the steps needed to becoming effective leaders of their companies as they start to expand at the event at the Marches Growth Hub Telford.
The October 2 workshop – called From Business Owner to Business Leader – will detail some of the do’s and don’ts of leadership and provide real-world advice on how to take your business to the next level.
Chris is part of the Telford growth hub’s successful team of Growth Hub Gurus, offering expert help to businesses to help them prosper and grow.
Claire Critchell, manager of the Marches Growth Hub Telford & Wrekin, which is delivered by Telford & Wrekin Council, said Chris’s session would help any business owner struggling to juggle growing their business with leading it.
“This is a new workshop specially devised by Chris to help all owners lead their business more effectively.
“If your business is expanding and you’ve ever felt you need to regain control, are the single point of approval or feel that your team would benefit from being empowered to deliver more, this workshop is for you.
“Chris will walk you through the do’s, don’ts and limits of the different stages of governance and enablement from the initial sales process through to end delivery and support.
“You’ll learn about gated reviews – what they are, why they are needed, who should be involved and how you can get value from them – and get on the right track to help resolve problems and improve performance and communication.”
The three-hour workshop starts at 9.15am and is being held at the Marches Growth Hub Telford & Wrekin’s base on the Innovation Campus at Priorslee.
