Business Support

Running your own business can be a lonely place at times. You’re the one who’s calling the shots, you’re the one who’s sorting out problems with customers, suppliers, staff. Maybe you feel that the dream of working for yourself is in danger of turning into the nightmare of working for everybody else BUT yourself.

At Level Up Business, we offer a comprehensive package of support for those time-pressed business owners who need a sense of perspective and an injection of motivation to keep their business growing.

Business Workshops

You’ve got to where you are today through the knowledge you have gained so far. To reach greater heights, you will need to learn yet more skills. Level Up Business Workshops offer you interactive, bitesize workshops to sharpen your business skills.

Our training workshops cover all aspects of running a successful small or medium sized business. These include:

  • Financial Control and Interpreting Financial Information
  • Planning for Growth
  • Delivering Consistent Customer Service
  • Planning and Executing Excellent Marketing Campaigns
  • Successful Selling
  • Time Management and Effective Delegation
  • Leadership and Management skills
  • Business Systems and Efficiency

Mastermind Groups

What better to keep you motivated and inspired than having your own, virtual ‘Board of Directors’ on hand to share their knowledge and experience. That’s what Level Up Business Support can offer you. A community of like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs, who are able to offer genuine and valuable advice and a sounding board for your ideas or your challenges.

Business Planning Workshop

It is still the case that most small businesses do not have an up to date business plan. And yet it is a proven fact that those business that plan and re-align regularly to that plan are the businesses that succeed and prosper in the medium and long term.

The trouble for many business owners is knowing where to start. And that is why Level Up Business hosts its Annual Business Planning Workshop – a day-long, facilitated training workshop that gives business owners and their management teams the space to think and review, to ask themselves the important questions, and to make reasoned decisions on the direction of their business over the next 12 months.

So if you would like to crack your business plan in a day, and to leave with an actionable plan to implement straight away, then perhaps the Level Up Planning Workshop is something you want to get in your diary for December this year.

Facilitated Management Meetings

Having a written plan is all very well and good. But it will simply sit on the shelf and gather dust unless it becomes a living, breathing document which drives your business activity throughout the year.

To prevent this, we recommend that you review performance regularly throughout the year to keep on track. To look at all your performance measures, such as turnover, margins, costs, profit, cash, and to assess how well you are doing against your plan. To review your activity against the plan and to see what is working and what is not. And to decide on the best next steps, given the current situation.

Level Up Business Support offers quarterly facilitated ‘management board meetings’, where we take you through the process of review and realignment, making you account for your decisions and your actions, and keeping you on-track to achieve your goals and targets.
