Businesses are exposed to lots of uncertainties in their environment. As well as the everyday internal challenges businesses face, external factors such as the state of the economy, rapid changes in technology or a turbulent political landscape can make it difficult for businesses to prepare a robust growth strategy for the future.
 
This workshop will give SMEs hands on tools to understand how to grow their business within the context of the environment around them; whether they’re looking to grow regionally, nationally or even internationally.
