“Ensuring Your Business is Response-able”

Being able to respond rather than react to business challenges, presents those that are structured well with massive growth opportunities. This involves a mindset shift from a “survive” short term day to day focus, to a longer term view. For example, will there be a recession, are you ready for it if there is? A recession is nothing more than a cycle, a cleansing period. It gets rid of all the unproductive processes, businesses and people, a bit like a detox. This provides a strong fresh foundation for new growth.

Whether a recession appears or not, it’s response-able practice for businesses to look ahead, re-evaluate, re-align their resources and re-jig their product lines - this creates a streamlining, which leads to better efficiency of product and production.

Jim will share the 5 growth opportunities of a recession should it appear over the horizon, with practical tips on where to focus.
