No, not that sort of showing off, the sort of showing off that involves offering free help and advice to businesses, the sort that comes with attending Antenna’s ‘Show Off’ Event in Nottingham next Monday (19th September). Want to know more? Then read on…..
Show Off at Antenna is a great new business advice and support event which takes place next Monday, 19th September between 10.00 and 17.00.
It involves over thirty specialist companies offering their time and their expertise free of charge for the day with the idea of supporting other businesses. Companies offering support are from a wide range of specialisms, there is bound to be something on offer which will benefit your business and, for one day only, you don’t have to pay!
Cowan Global are offering a drop-by strategy surgery where we will chat about all things strategy for anyone who wants to ‘drop-by’. What sort of things will we be covering? Well, that’s up to you, it’s about the advice you need. Topics might range from how effective your strategy is to do you even need a strategy? We might help you clear up the confusion between your business plan and your company strategy – and the function of both.
Those are the obvious things for strategy consultant to cover but don’t forget the less obvious. For example, do you tender for public contracts? If so, have you considered the strategies and policies you might need in place if you are to be successful? Increasingly environmental policies and ethics strategies are being requested, not forgetting your health and safety policy.
Public tenders will also require a policy on equality. A lot of businesses view the Equality Act (2010) as yet more red tape but it is to your advantage to understand it and act on it, not just because the law says so but because it is good for business to do so. How? Drop by and see us at Show Off at Antenna on Monday and we shall explain!
We hope to see you there!
