What is the next level for you and your business?


“Take the time out to evaluate your business and see where you need to improve, grow or take action”.Charmaine Mace, A property Cycle


Do you have all the freedom, time, money, profit and success you envisaged when you started your business?

If not do you have a clear strategy and plan for achieving those things?

Do you want to move your business forward faster? Make decisions with greater confidence? Maintain focus and avoid procrastination?

On this ½ day masterclass we will help you to address these issues and make a clear plan for progress.


“After attending this event me and my business partner were totally clear on how we needed to move forward and what to focus on next – we’d recommend it to any business wanting to grow!” Dom Thorpe, Wireless Fitness Ltd.


What’s involved?


  • Clarify your purpose and vision for the business

  • Learn a powerful strategic planning process and create an effective strategy for your primary challenge area

  • Learn 7 focal points to raise your game and drive your business to the next level

  • Business problem solving with other business leaders



“Very useful platform to understand how to grow your business”. Mike Schill, Smart PA



Is this masterclass for you?



  • Are you a Business Owner/Director of an established small business with 1-50 employees?

  • Do you want to improve, change and grow your business over the coming year?

  • Are you frustrated by a lack of time, focus, resources, or an inconsistent pipeline?

  • Do you struggle to “see the wood for the trees” in terms of the best way forward?

  • Do you know what you want to change but are not putting it into action in the business?

  • Do you need to dedicate more time to working “on” the business?


If so, you are in the right place as this masterclass will give you the essential tools and understanding you need to push past the day to day and move towards achieving your goals.

The HR Matters story

leading to the creation of a unique HR APP for SMEs

 

HR Matters was founded by Helen Wild, a fully qualified HR consultant with over 15 years of experience in this field. It is her unique entrepreneurial approach that enables HR Matters to help companies overcome their pain points and develop their business from an HR perspective. During the first year of trading, Helen identified a gap in the market for a comprehensive HR advisory and support tool.

Launching the new HR APP for SMEs

Most HR advice comes from statute and the law, delivered in house or through outsourced professionals. Until now there hasn't been anything that speakes to business owners/line managers in an understanding and supporting way. Helen has created an app that covers the whole employee life cycle with advice on best practice including forms, procedures, and templates to download, making it easier to navigate and understand complex HR topics in a practicle way

 

ABOUT HELEN WILD:

Helen has over 15 years’ experience in HR. Throughout her career; she has worked for household names such as HSBC, Informa and Swinton Insurance, both here in the UK and internationally.
