A common challenge amongst established businesses, large or small, is taking the business to the next level. Innovation and new product/service development are areas that many businesses struggle with finding time and financial means for. However, by reviewing every aspect of the existing business, more often than not there will be resources which can be utilised for both existing product offering and new development, hence making sure the cost aspect of expanding the business does not become the burden many believe it to be.
As a Business Mentor, Anne Williams will focus on the running of a business and how to narrow in on the areas a business owner or senior manager of an SME business should prioritize to ensure the current business is not at risk. She will also offer advice and an alternative view when looking at using the current resources within the business differently to ensure an optimal cost–benefit relationship when embarking on the journey to develop the portfolio.
