HOW WE WORK

The Business Navigator team provide pro bono advice and hands-on assistance to businesses with the potential for and commitment to growth.  

INITIAL MEETING

We begin with an initial meeting to discuss your business goals, challenges, market conditions, products and services, customers, competitors and resources.  

We'll tell you more about our skills and knowledge and together, determine how we can help.


This is a free ranging discussion over coffee, with no obligations.

PROPOSAL

Once we have an understanding of your business idea and goals, if we can help we'll provide a draft proposal outlining how we can assist and our expectations of you.

Depending on your business, this may be a comprehensive twelve-month growth plan, preparing just a couple of discrete items, connecting you to a specialist or a recommendation for online training, workshops or events. 

If we can't help, we'll do our best to connect you with someone who can.

DELIVERY

Then we (and you!) get to work. 

Having a plan is the key to achieving your business goals.

 

We work alongside you, pro bono, to complete the tasks required to achieve your objectives, meeting with you regularly to keep you motivated and accountable. 

What are your goals for the the next twelve months?
