Business Masterclass

Mar 18, 2021

What is our McIntyre Dick Business Masterclass?

Mutual learning. Accountability sessions. Business coaching. 

Business Masterclass is a 12-month programme about learning, improving and setting meaningful measurable goals and achieving these, with the help of connections through the community of motivated, like-minded participants and practical resources available at McIntyre Dick. 

We'll discuss what your immediate needs are, identify opportunities and vulnerabilities and design a programme made specifically to help you overcome your challenges. 

During the course, we'll work intensively on our work programme designed to get your company into the best shape possible. For most businesses, better shape translates into a few things: to have better foundations, improved culture, succession in mind, better service lines and ultimately, to make more revenue. 

What does it looks like

How the course takes shape depends on the participants.

We'll start with business plan basics, setting your purpose, vision and values, set short and long term goals that challenge you and work competitively towards them.

Topics participants can also choose to cover include (but are not limited to) organisational structure, team culture, communication styles, marketing/advertising, benchmarking, mindset, meeting rhythms, customer journey mapping, customer experience, vulnerabilities/opportunities/SWOT, and ratios of performance. 

All we expect of you is to work as hard as you can on achieving your goals during your 12 months. Your assigned business coach Ashley Burdon will help keep you accountable and will have access to our specialists and bring them in as required. This hands-on support lasts all year. 

Who is this for?

This series of workshops is suitable for motivated business owners keen to progress their business

  • Those without an established business plan that would benefit from stepping out of the day to day grind and working actively on their business
  • Businesses that need to reset and reflect on their business priorities and actions to drive them forward
  • Business owners that have a plan but would benefit from additional accountability to eliminate procrastination with progressing key actions
  • Any business owner who is keen to join a group of like-minded peers to learn, share ideas and grow their motivation through developing a tight-knit network.

How much time will it take?

We're asking for twelve months of dedication

This course kickstarts in April and continues bi-monthly for the year.
