Plan For Profit During Disruption

Suburban growth means periods of disruption must happen, like road upgrades & development to create happy, thriving communities.

If you are a business that needs to:
A) maintain their profit during these times &
B) wants to take advantage of the growth to come,
then attending this workshop will help you identify what business & marketing priorities will help you reduce the impact during, and leverage from growth after.

Whether a service based business, one that sells products, or a mix of both, there are 4 key building blocks that when measured and managed, will deliver the best outcome for your business while running a business within a disruptive environment.

In this workshop, we will discuss the disruption expected within the Sydney Olympic Precinct whilst ANZ Stadium is rebuilt and the light rail is being constructed and take a close look at the key factors that impact your bottom line during a time of disruption and how to address them by creating a strategic business and marketing plan.

You will:

  • Understand the 4 key building blocks of business profit
  • Complete a checklist to identify your gaps
  • Highlight the 3 top priorities before disruption has an impact
  • Plan business & marketing strategies to address them
