Helping Local Businesses Do So Much More Than Survive and Thrive!
Business expert Robert Craven and his team are talking to over 2,000 UK businesses about how to get more sales, profits and customers.
The half-day workshops, "Let’s Talk... More Profit" and "Let’s Talk… Marketing" are based on his best-selling business books including "Kick-Start Your Business" and "Bright Marketing". They take place in 17 towns throughout the UK in May to July. The events are being run by Barclays Bank and demand for places is already high.
Robert and his fellow speakers, Geoff Ramm and Louise Nicolaou, will also use materials from his latest book "Beating The Credit Crunch" which will show how businesses have beaten the current economic downturn. The FT describes Craven as "the entrepreneurship guru".
Craven says, "The ‘Let’s Talk…’ workshops are a brilliant opportunity to step back, think about what you are trying to do and start to make decisions that will fundamentally improve the profitability of your business; in the current economic climate this is more important than ever."
Melanie Smart from Adurasys in Birmingham:
"I’ve become a serial attendee of the “Let’s Talk” seminars because I always leave with an idea that makes a difference to my bottom line (rather than some business clap trap) and all delivered with the humour and panache of a top performer. I never thought the business of improving your profit could be so much fun.”
