No one gets a hall pass in business.  Owners today are constantly faced with difficult challenges and eight of ten new businesses will not survive the first five years.  Competition is difficult and building a sustainable, profitable business is arguably the most challenging sport in all of business today.

Let’s change the odds into your favour.  This in-depth work shop is for anyone looking to start a business , or is in business.  Together, through a systematic approach that Alison has developed, we are going to deep dive and diagnose each of the key drivers of business:  Marketing/Sales/Offers, Financial/Legal/Insurance, People, Self Care. As a collective, we are going to identify areas of risk, focus on gaps and leverage strengths.

This workshop will be facilitated by Alison Geskin, President & CEO of The Art of Strategy. 

Get ready to create a roadmap that will leave you inspired to take action as soon as Alison leaves the stage.
