Business growth is inextricably linked to change. Stand still for too long, and the activities that were working for you in the past may have moved on. The businesses which shine the brightest through continuous change are inherently responsive to change, and aim for agility rather than upholding the status quo.
How can you transform your business so you're taking advantage of every opportunity for growth? And how can you treat your own business transformation with the same level of dedication and focus that you'd commit to a client project?
When it comes to actually growing your business - why is change so challenging and why do over 70% of even the most well-planned and well-intended change programmes fail to deliver?
At this senior-level workshop, suitable for all sizes of design agency, business transformation expert Ralph Ardill will draw on his extensive experience helping design agencies, international corporations and SMEs, to tell you how you can make the leap, beat the odds and successfully transform and grow your business.
