Business & Financial Planning Workshops


Business & Financial Planning Workshops

AuxiliaGroup have the great pleasure to launch our Business and Financial Planning Workshops in Naas and Cork this November

These workshops will give you the practical tools to drive and direct your business in 2023 and beyond.

These are 1-day workshops and will be fast moving and high energy, after which you will have a ready-to-use Business Plan.

Business & Financial Planning is a key strategic element for company growth and sustainability.

All too often a business plan is viewed as a document written up once for a bank manager only to gather dust on a shelf.

However, a well-prepared business & financial plan can add significant value to a company and be a vital tool in its success.

Some of the benefits of business planning:

  • See all the elements of the business as a whole and how they fit together. Are they aligned?
  • Strategic focus – your key target markets, unique selling points (USP)
  • Identifying those critical success factors and must win battles on the road to success allowing you to set priorities
  • Provides milestones and financial targets against which to monitor company performance, facilitating early identification of
  • problems
  • Managing cash flows – profits do not equal cash.
  • Detailed cash forecasts highlighting pinch points allowing you to plan accordingly
  • A framework to dedicate time to focus on the long-term performance of the company
  • An essential component in raising finance – debt, equity or grant funding
  • Provide direction to the company and an enhanced sense of purpose to management and employees

If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!
