We are here to help New Zealand Businesses Grow
New Zealand small to medium businesses are at the heart and soul of the country. We build the economy, we generate jobs, we are the innovators of this amazing country at the bottom of the earth that we live in.
BUT most businesses are not thriving, they are in a constant cycle of grinding and working too hard. Always working IN their business, rather than having the time to build, grow and work ON their business.
There are three major problems facing small to medium sized business (5 – 50 staff) today:
- Owners and managers attend conferences – come back to work full of great ideas and intentions; get hit with a myriad of problems; put their notes in a drawer and do what they’ve always done because they don’t have time to try anything new
- Take on coaches/consultants who are experts in one or two areas but who stay too long and block any other coaches for fear of losing income
- Are not exposed to an array of coaches/consultants so they can bring in the expertise they need for only as long as they need it
That is why we created the Big Thinking Business Forums, to help the SMEs of New Zealand to grow and thrive.
What are the Big Thinking Business Forums?
The Big Thinking Business Forums have been created as a space for owners and managers of 5 – 50 staff, to meet; discuss; learn some new things and be reminded of things they’ve always known but keep forgetting to put into practice. This is a place to work on your ‘big’ picture rather than getting bogged down in the the day to day.
Our aim is to help you grow your business – to create a space where you can listen to great presenters, but in REAL TIME create an action plan for dealing with your hot business challenges.
The forums are designed to be ‘speed learning’ spaces and even ‘speed business dating’ sessions: short presentations on a given business topic followed by ‘table’ discussions and the creation of ‘action plans’. We hold just 4 Forums per year so that the smaller/medium sized business can use the sessions as their creative/strategic planning opportunities.
