In this breakfast briefing we will examine the reasons businesses become stuck and why they fail to develop and grow. Not only do all businesses face similar challenges, they also tend to fall into the same traps, not surprisingly then knowing what these are and when they will happen, is predictable.


Mike Epton, of The Centre for Management & Business Development Limited (CMBD), will deliver this session. He is a former Director and Business Owner of a ‘Scale Up’ High Growth company where he experienced first-hand the issues and found solutions to the problems of a rapidly growing business. A business consultant and coach since 2003, his company CMBD, has worked with hundreds of growing businesses throughout England and Wales where he has developed a unique action-based approach to removing the obstacles of growth and development through insight and practical tools for success.


During the morning, Mike will help you learn to identify your current and future business issues and understand why some problems are a natural and desirable part of growing your business and why other problems are the complete opposite. Mike will also help you to identify the best course of action and the role a business coach can have in helping you realise your aspirations.


By attending this briefing, you will cover the following learning:


- How to identify where your company is currently in its growth journey

- What issues you will encounter and why they become traps

- The difference between normal problems and those you want to avoid

- How you can avoid the traps and maintain growth momentum

- The role of Business coaching and training in achieving your goals
