Business Plan Writing

Programme Overview

This business plan writing workshop is intended to take you through the process of producing an effective business plan whether it be to secure a loan, attract investment, to demonstrate the viability and potential of your business idea to yourself, your colleagues or your boss or simply to develop a plan for how you will achieve your business vision and goals.

The focus is on the plan rather than the planning – who the audience is, what to put in and what to leave out, how to get your message across clearly and concisely, how to avoid the common pitfalls and how to adapt style, tone and format to meet your specific needs and objectives.

Programme Objectives

By the end of the programme you will:

  • Understand what a business plan is and what it’s for
  • Understand who you are writing for and what they need/expect from a business plan
  • Understand the key questions the business plan needs to address
  • Understand the typical shortcomings and how to avoid them
  • Know what to put in and what to leave out
  • How to adapt style, tone and format to meet your needs and objectives and those of your audience
  • Be able to document your business plan in a clear, concise and accurate way

Who is Business Plan Writing for?

Anyone who has to write a business plan or business case for themselves, their boss, the bank or investors; who has an understanding of the business planning process and who is looking to articulate their plan in a clear, concise and accurate way to get the outcome they are looking for.

Style

Coaching style, highly interactive with plenty of opportunity to apply the learning to your own situation and to learn from your peers.

Pre and post workshop support

To make the workshop as specific as possible to your needs you will be invited to submit your top 3 challenges with business plan writing in advance of the workshop and where ever possible these will be addressed on the day. 

You are also invited to bring with you any examples you may have of your own work and any documentation you have for the business plan to work on during the day. 

Following the workshop you will receive a series of 6 emails addressing each key area of the business plan with exercises to reinforce and embed the learning.

A note on confidentiality: confidentiality within the workshop will be expressly sought among all delegates.
