6 July – 10 Elements to a Successful Business with Chris Batten

There are ten distinct elements to successful business, regardless of your size or stage of development. A business that has any one or more of these elements missing may survive for a year or so but will eventually fail. This will be illustrated with high profile and not so well known examples. Having all the elements in place gives you a much better chance at survival, but is just surviving enough?
Some business leaders and entrepreneurs want more than survival, they want exceptional and sustainable results. The key to this is having the ten elements in place but more importantly having all the elements in perfect balance and understanding that the balance will need to change. Change to suit the environment, the stage of development, the economy and environment in which you operate.

  • Learn to be demonstrable
  • Sell more by selling less
  • Great strategies create great businesses 
  • How to leave nothing to chance

This interactive and entertaining session will introduce you to the elements, but more importantly will be delivered with your particular business and challenges in mind. As with all  the workshops Chris delivers, individual support for 60 days is available on a complimentary basis for attendees. Chris will tell you, “Talking about it is too simple, in 60 days of support you can really make a difference to your business, take advantage of that support with my compliments.”

Norwich Coordinator – Denise Bretton

Denise is business woman, mentor, wife and mother.  She launched her business in 2006 just 8 months after her son was born, having spent 18 years in the corporate world, and is actively involved in her husbands business.

Having a child after the first flush of youth has long gone made Denise realise that time waits for no man (or woman!).   Her maternity leave was coming to an end and the thought of wasting her time making money for shareholders under conditions she most certainly did not enjoy, while having to leave her precious little boy with a child minder all day filled her with dread.

A cursory conversation with the Area Personnel Manager confirmed Denise’s first thoughts that she really, really did not want to go back.  It was time for a change.

Now Denise gets to enjoy the benefits of being a mother along with the benefits of building a smart home based business and is living her life by her design

Denise likes to guarantee everyone to the BWN a warm welcome so look out for this face
