As part of the 10th Hart Brown Economic Forum, being held on the 24 June at the University of Surrey, a number of free workshops will run prior to the event.
Entitled, Are you serious about growing your business? GrowthAccelerator, in conjunction with Guildford Borough Council, will host a one hour seminar from 1.30pm on how businesses can maximise growth. GrowthAccelerator is a high quality unique service led by some of the country’s most successful growth specialists. It exclusively targets high growth businesses who want to enter the next phase of growth and have the potential and determination to get there.
Through GrowthAccelerator delegates can find new connections, new routes to investment and the new ideas and strategy needed for the business to achieve its full potential.
At the event, Mark Addy, GrowthAccelerator Growth Manager will lead a presentation and delegates will learn through a case study example why even growing businesses can benefit from coaching as well as how delegates can join the 13,000 clients already growing as a result of the service.
Also running will be the The One Hour MBA, from the Surrey Business School. Students claim that studying for an MBA is a game-changing experience. In this workshop they and their teachers will share the lessons that have had the most impact on their businesses and their careers.
Delegates will spend the hour with students from the part-time Executive MBA programme who are studying alongside their careers in business and the public sector. The session is facilitated by a senior member of the MBA teaching team. Every delegate leaves with a set of key learning points from each of the MBA modules and the tried and tested top ten tips from the sharpest students.
For anyone interested in studying for an MBA this workshop is also a great taster session with the opportunity to quiz students about the MBA experience and how they are putting their new skills and knowledge into practice in the workplace.
Registration for the workshops will open at 1pm, and places are limited to 20.To book your place, email@example.com. And more information at http://www.economic-forum.co.uk/workshops.html
