Strategic Planning Workshop - Develop your Business Strategy

Strategic Planning Workshop SPW

Strategy Planning Workshop by Richard Gourlay is about developing your plan to succeed

A Strategic Planning Workshop (SPW) enables business owners and directors to work ON their business, not IN their business.  A SPW enables leaders to look at where they are, where they are going and why. An SPW provides directors and owners the space, tools and expertise to stand back and refresh and take ownership of the direction they want to take with their business. We work with leaders and owners of businesses to develop their business strategy. Helping them plan and implement  change and improvements in their business, supporting them in achieving their personal and business goals. 

Successful people plan their success and Cowden works with entrepreneurial business owners to maximise their chance of success. Our expertise, in assessing and understanding their markets, reviewing their current business model coupled with our background knowledge and tailored strategic processes turn dreams into reality. Cowden's SPW delivers a SPW for leaders leaving them with a clear vision, a defined strategy and focused direction to take with identified achievable goals to get you there, and everyone owning the action plan to make that success happen.
