Staycation or vacation?

Well the summer holidays are nearly here, and the weather is predictably, er, unpredictable! Are you risking a staycation after last year’s bumper summer, or are you a little more risk averse, like me? Full disclosure – I’ve taken some advice from the experts at the MET office and have booked a cheeky week of guaranteed sun, nearer the equator.  Just in case!

Seriously though, that couple of weeks R&R is a really important time for me to unwind from the grind, so I’m not taking any chances and I’ve consulted the experts for some guidance (my own weather experience is limited to licking my finger and sticking it in the air from time to time).  The same goes for my business decisions.

As a business owner I always make sure to use all the information and advice available to me in order to make informed decisions. I know my limitations. Which is why I’ve got a crack team of specialists and consultant accountants, lawyers, marketers and the like on hand, to help me out when needed.

Of course, it’s ok to be a Jack (or Jane) of all trades and master of none – because let’s face it, those ‘Jacks and ‘Janes’ are the cornerstone of the SME industry; our business leaders, go-getters and entrepreneurs – the guys and gals that make things happen. And without them/us/you there would be no need for specialists and consultants!!

With my specialist hat on, I’ve just launched my new High Performing Business Programme – which is designed to help business owners and leaders succeed through their people.

I’ve found a way ‘to bottle’ my 30+ years (I think that bottle would be finest Scotch whiskey by the way) of HR and People Management experiences and insights and distil them into one neatly wrapped package that will guide you right through from getting the right people on board, to implementing the right people practices and processes.  So, if any of the following sounds familiar to you, I would highly recommend you swing along to one of my exclusive workshops in September and October: ( please insert specific Sept and October HPB workshop dates here)

  • Are you about to embark on your growth plan and recognise the need to get some expert help and advice?
  • Are you a business owner or MD of a business that’s struggling to achieve its goals?
  • Do you question yourself day after day about why your people aren’t delivering the results you need?
  • Are you worried that you just don’t have the right people in your leadership and management team to deliver the results you want?
  • Are you a successful business that’s growing and things are just beginning to go wrong, and you don’t know why?

Prices for each workshop are £75 per person, but a limited number of early bird tickets are exclusively available for FREE to my newsletter subscribers from TODAY.  But beware, once these early bird free tickets have gone, they are gone, so don’t risk it – book it.

Alternatively, if you can’t make it to my workshop, then drop me a line, give me a call or book an appointment at one of my Summer HR Clinics and HR Director strategy sessions and we can have  an initial discussion about how I could bring your management team the skills they need to take your business to the next level.
