STRATEGY IN A DAY

For early stage and growing companies who are looking for clarity and focus to help them make the right decisions, we will work through what strategy means, prepare a strategy for your company ready to be tested in the real world, and measure what's needed to know whether it is working.

BID TO WIN

As service companies grow, and win big contracts, they inevitably hit competitive tender processes. If you're new to this, or are struggling to make an impact, this workshop gets you up to speed, and introduces you to a methodology that ensures before you put pen to paper and start writing your bid, you have a clear view on what your customer wants and how you’re going to deliver.

LEARN FROM THE PIONEERS

Stories, provocations and inspiration from entrepreneurs, businesses and movements challenging the status quo. Can these pioneers inspire you to do things differently within your organisation?

BRINGING DESIGN THINKING TO YOUR ORGANISATION 

As design-led organisations achieve greater success, more companies are looking to bring this powerful toolkit to their business. This workshop introduces you to the approach, examines the opportunities and pitfalls of using it, and provides real examples of where it has been used to great effect.

Matt worked with us to deliver a first business plan and financial model for our start-up social enterprise, and the result was crucial in us securing some early financing to start to scale up. Matt brought enthusiasm and positivity in addition to his impressive knowledge, experience and skills and he really ‘gets’ our innovative approach. We look forward to continuing to work with Matt as we go to the next level.
