Small Business Success Factors – Sydney Course

Why do some businesses succeed whilst others fail? If you’re a small business owner or seeking to start your own business, then this workshop on Small Business Success Factors will be an important addition to your skills and knowledge.

Many factors can impact on the success of a small business. This workshop will help you understand the key factors that can make or break your business – and they are often not the things you are spending most of your time on!

In small business there is always a wide variety of things to do and a limited number of people to do it. It is easy to get caught up in a situation where you are working so hard IN the business that you don’t have time to work ON the business.

In this workshop, we will look specifically at your business model and work out if it is the best model for your business. We will review your products and services and see whether the business offering is consistent with the market and audience you are targeting. We will identify your competitive advantage and plan ways to leverage this to drive business success. We will also investigate ways to build a winning team and get the best out of the people you work with.

If you want to drive your business to success, then make sure you enrol in this course to find the winning formula for your business.
