The Business Planning Intensive workshops are for businesses that are established and are now ready to set a business strategy to identify and achieve new growth opportunities.

If your current plan for growth is cross your fingers and hope it succeeds, this workshop intensive will springboard your business forward with a strategy to make it happen.

Recharge your business to the next level, identify new opportunities and plan for change in a two-day program designed to accelerate growth in businesses already in operation for two years.

You’ve worked hard to get your business up and running. Now take time out from working in your business and instead step back to work on your business, sharpen your focus and put yourself on a clear path towards future growth.

Join a small group of like-minded business operators to ready your business for what’s next in a dynamic and innovative environment with a focus on problem solving and strategy development.

In sessions totalling 16 hours, followed up by five hours of one-on-one mentoring, be guided by a small business expert with practical know-how and lots of insight to share that will give your business a shot in the arm.

Identify where your business is at now, where you’d like to be in future, and exactly how you’ll get there. Learn how to build strong leadership, engage employees and how to generate high customer satisfaction.

Commercialising Your New Idea (2 Sessions)
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
to Wednesday, June 05, 2019

9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
KnoxBiz logo
Everything you need to know to take your innovation or idea from drawing board to market launch.

Get help to assess feasibility, decide its business potential and develop a clear commercialisation strategy over two inspiring workshops led by an experienced innovation and commercialisation expert.

Many great ideas and inventions never get off the ground or become fully-fledged success stories because of a failure to road test their market feasibility, or the cost and time required to get there.

The lesson is simple: to turn an idea into a profitable business you need to plan every stage of how you will take it to market. And that rule applies whether you’ve already invested hours in development or whether your new product or service is yet to be tested.

Get on top of everything you need to consider, from protecting your intellectual property, to market testing, steps to market entry, what sort of finance you’ll need to get there and where to source it.

Be guided by an experienced innovation and commercialisation practitioner with over 30 years’ experience to build a deeper understanding of the business potential of your idea, innovation or invention and get the right support and advice.

This five and a half hour workshop, held over two sessions, includes two free follow-up one-on-one mentoring sessions offering tailored advice to develop a commercialisation strategy that will keep you on track from day one.
