Essential resource management insights. A game plan for your growing business.

When your business is embryonic it's easy to know where you stand financially. It's also easy to manage staff when it's just you, just you and and one or two others.

But how do you most effectively manage people and money as you grow?

On 25 November two expert presenters, Bruce Whiting and Megan Tough demonstrate the key aspects of a master plan that will allow you to managing the growth of your business.

We will look at the pitfalls and dangers of mismanaging your most important resources.

Managing Finances as You Grow
When your business is small, you can often gauge how business is going from your bank balance. As you grow (and especially when experiencing fast growth) your bank account is no longer the really indicator of what is going on.

Growth makes it more difficult to have a clear picture of where you stand financially.

During this webinar we'll look at the procedures, systems and people to have in place to manage growth and stay on top of financials.

We'll also look at how to:

Ensure your 'accounting room' is operating correctly
Know you're getting the right financial results - measuring the right indicators
Get accurate monthly reporting
Develop links with financiers
Work towards getting your own board in place
We'll also look at the right structures and business plan you need to have in place if you are looking to fund growth.

Managing Human Resources as You Grow
Increasing rates of growth can result in these challenges:

Less of your personal attention on individual customers
Your focus dispersed more thinly across an increasing range of issues
The need to delegate responsibility
A requirement for broader operating capabilities
During this webinar we will discuss:

Planning Ahead - Workforce planning for growing businesses. How to determine what your business needs now and what it needs in the future.
Your Vision - How to align business capabilities to your vision.
Personal/Business Trajectories - The trajectory of your business will mirror your personal trajectory. If you grow and develop, so will your business. If you stay where you are - your business probably will too.
