Brexit has captured our imagination like few events in our working history; no-one knows for sure, what is ‘over that hill’ when it arrives. Is it going to be good news, potentially damaging or indeed elements of both? One thing is for sure is, it isn’t going away. So, how do we take control and climb that hill to give us a view of what things may look like and to understand how to take the right decisions?

We at the Construction Leaders Club have been pondering this for some time and have decided to take action! As part of our Navigating your Way Through Brexit theme, we will be delivering 4 half-day workshops.

to Minimise the Brexit Effect

Question: ‘Are you taking a long-term, strategic view of your firm’s ability to survive the Brexit effect?

You can’t get where you’re going until you know where you are!

This step is the foundation so you can apply and compare it to future scenarios.

Workshop 3: Improve your Marketing to
Minimise the Brexit Effect
Friday, 13 April 2018

What did the smart businesses do in 2008 to counter the recession; they invested in marketing. As the economy improved years later, those who invested in a well crafted plan, emerged stronger and with a better risk profile.

In March 2019 Brexit happens for real! None of us know what is ‘over the Brexit hill’ do we; but is it now time to review the effectiveness and purpose of your marketing activities to lessen potential impacts?

Marketing is the energy of a business; can you imagine using a torch without a battery to power it?

Marketing provides the power to your objectives and strategy through a set of well defined activities performed consistently

How would you rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 regarding the following:

  • Are you building and maintaining a quality pipeline of work?
  • Do you have people with the right marketing skills/qualifications?
  • Do you have a clear business ethos/identity that transforms into a value proposition and permeates all your marketing tools.
  • Are you making the time to maintain your key business relationships
  • Do you spend enough time researching sectors/clients/economic influences so that you can make informed decisions
  • Do you have data on your clients and sectors which demonstrates your financial performance?

Do you want to improve your ratings? If so, then the answer is to attend this workshop, as we will provide you with some tools and frameworks to help you do just that.

Workshop 4: Leading and Motivating
Your Team Through Brexit

Creating a high performing team is one of the most powerful things any business owner can do, but it’s not easy.

It goes without saying that you firstly need to recruit and retain employees who fit well with your business, have a great attitude and know how to get the job done. But to truly get the best out of your team and to help them deliver more efficiently and effectively year-on-year, it’s important that they are kept motivated, energised and continually developed.

So how do you make this happen?

This introductory half-day workshop is designed to help small business owners:

  • Improve their self-awareness and understanding of how to be an effective leader;
  • Learn the art of active listening;
  • Understand the difference between engaging and communicating with their teams; and
  • Creating a culture of support and learning.
