Preparing for change in your business - Inverness

Event Date

27 May 2014


Think ahead to where your business needs to be in one, three and five years' time.

What do you need to do to get there?

How do you identify the changes that will benefit your business and more crucially, how do you take your most vital asset - your people - with you as you implement change?

This workshop hosted by SMAS in conjunction with HIE and Business Gateway will focus on how to prepare for and manage change in your business in order to grow and succeed.

Change in business, whether driven by internal or external influences, is a fact of life and in order to stay competitive, businesses must continually adapt to bring about improved efficiency, increased productivity and greater profitability.

“Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." —John F. Kennedy

Is it better to drive change or let change control your business? This breakfast workshop will set out some steps to help you to:

  • Understand change - how to define clear goals and quantify the benefits.
  • Plan and prepare for change - how to create a change plan, identify barriers, communicate it and manage the impact of change.
  • Implement change - how to build an effective change team and obtain the buy-in of your staff.
  • Embed the change - how to return to the new 'business as usual'.

This breakfast workshop is a fantastic opportunity to find out how you and your workforce can start doing things differently and begin to implement positive change in your business.

There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions and network and the event has been timed to ensure minimum time away from the workplace, starting at 8.00am with breakfast rolls, fruit, pastries and refreshments and finishing promptly at 10.30am.
